I've been inspired by making the glass rainbows, to use different colour combinations in my work. I love the retro vibe these pin dishes have.
The coloured pieces of glass are all cut by hand and placed together like a collage. The glass is then put into the kiln and heated to around 1400C which bonds all the pieces together. Sometimes the glass is put into the kiln a second or even third time depending on the finish I'm looking for. This all takes time, around 12hrs per firing, but its a thrill each time I open the kiln to see if the glass has behaved as I'd expected.
