Compression 10

0 loves

Intense warm colors of yellows, oranges, reds, and purples shift perspectives, flowing together within the circular final shape.  This fused glass artwork was created by stacking hundreds of different colors and shaped fusing glass.  Under high temperature and pressure, it is then kiln fired.  The final shape is diamond wet saw cut and ground smooth.  Powdered glass is sifted onto the top surface, then kiln fired again to achieve a smooth texture.  Each firing program takes from 18 to 21 hours with a minimum of 8 hours before the kiln can be opened.

This technique creates a physical movement, compressing and shifting colors and perspective.

My “Compression” series is a foray into experimentation with transparent and opaque fusing glass.
