Shell-shaped glasswork mounted with bronze supports.
Materials and techniques
Kiln-cast glass and bronze. Lost wax casting technique, from an original model in mixed media. The wax model had wax inclusions worked into the surface, which are embedded in the investment mould and cast into the glass during firing. The copper and silver react with the glass and heat to create the colours - red, blue-green. The glass cast is cut and polished and mounted with bronze castings, also lost-wax from wooden carvings. The bronze is finished and patinated.
