Having worked in clay for over 30 years and being enamored with the translucency of glass, it wasn’t hard to move to making clay molds that then need to be cast with a plaster/silica mixture that can be put in my programmable kiln filled with different forms of glass frit, sheet, billets, all tested to be compatible which means they have the same coefficient of expansion. The glass after coming to temperature has to be very slowly annealed, usually taking a week. Since glass is expensive, I’ve been exploring ways to make these forms thinner. Combining clay and glass works perfectly and is a lot of fun.
