Images may be created in wax prior to being encased in plaster. Once the wax is melted out a cavity remains into which casting glass is melted. This creates uniquely detailed sculptures with clarity and diverse color which can mounted in a variety of ways. This is a detailed and time consuming process so the technique is reserved for special projects.
We love doing "Shona Art". Shona Firman, a well known New Zealand kiln caster comes to visit and share her unique flair for whimsical creations. Her creative bend has influenced our production of small 3 dimensional fused and slumped pieces - totems, bird houses, tree houses, trees and neighborhoods of houses, grain elevators and critters. They all have a magic of their own
