Product Description

Make Beautiful, Functional Glass Boxes
Merge the age-old art of pate de verre glass casting with modern technology and contemporary design!

This product is really two molds: a mold that makes the base and a mold that makes the lid. Fill each mold with glass frit, powder, or small pieces of sheet glass. Then, if you choose, tack fire other castings to the lid and base.

Durable, reusable mold. Includes firing directions. The larger mold is approximately 5.75" x 6.5" x 2.37" and holds 450 grams. The smaller mold holds 220 grams. See size perspective of mold with quarter images shown.

Pros : The instructions were very good. Good results every time.
Cons : I followed the base polishing instructions exactly but the base shape does distort some during the fire polishing. The surface after fire polishing did not have the same shine as the lid does but only slightly better than a matte finish.
Other Thoughts : I am still interested in trying other shapes as well.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
