Cascade

“I love using techniques that play with the viewer’s eye and play with colour and light.”





A Little About How This Glass Is Made

Tiny pieces of Bullseye glass are carefully cut and arranged in rows. Some of the pieces are triangles, some strips (I use a variety of shapes). I use both clear and opaque glass and imagine how they will look once fused.

These are then put in a kiln within a ‘dam’ so that the glass is contained as it melts. This is then fired between 750 and 800 degrees Celsius so all the individual pieces fire into a single piece of glass.

I then take these sheets and trim the edges so that they are neat, using a tile saw.

The heat in the kiln melts the tiny pieces of glass together so that they create beautiful curves and shapes. I can never fully predict how each individual piece will melt. The resulting glass looks like colour cascading.
