Description

This glass was fused by me. It was cast in a mould and then the glass was heated up to around 780 degrees celsius in a small glass fusing kiln and then it was then brought to annealing temperature to make it strong. It was then fire polished in the kiln to create the smooth surface. This whole process takes over 17 hours to complete.
It is a stunning cross, made with blue aventurine which, whilst technically transparent, fuses to a dense dark opaque when fired alone. The result is a beautiful, almost black, glass which is both simple and yet has depth of colour. The aventurine glass has a nature subtle shimmer.
It is approximately 7.5cm high and 5.5cm across. A beautiful piece, each cross is individually made and one of a kind. Ideal as a present to a loved one.

Not suitable for children - this is made from real glass and needs to be treated respect - it may have sharp edges if broken. It is, however, made from thick annealed glass so is fairly robust for everyday use.

Inspiration

This was inspired by the Italian glass seen on holiday in Sorrento.
