Each piece is hand made using a lost wax casting technique. This process involves many different stages to achieve the finished outcome.

First you begin with fettling the wax. This is followed by building a contour mould (made of a plaster/silica mix) around the wax model. Once set, the wax is steamed out, leaving a positive copy.

The contour mould is then dried and loaded into a kiln to be fired. Over time, solid glass gradually melts into the positive space filling a positive form.

The contour mould now ‘baked’ can be broken off, this is called divesting. Revealing a glass object. This then is cold worked, sanded and polished. After cleaning you are left with a finished piece.
