Description

This glass buckle 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.
These buckles are made with Egyptian blue frit cast within an vanilla base and encased in clear glass. The copper within the blue has reacted with the sulphur in the vanilla glass making a truly unique reaction, like marble veining. Some of the blue has darkened to a dark chocolate. They are approximately 3.5cm across and are pleasantly wonky. They will be perfect to fasten a bag or belt or to use as a button.
This sale is for 1 buckle. There are 2 available.

Each button is handmade and there will be some irregularities in shape due to this - do not expect perfectly matched holes! Frit casting is done by combining tiny pieces of glass, including clear, within a casting mould. This means that there may be variations of colour depth within the piece and this is normal.
Handwash only (I wouldn't want to put a large glass buckle in my washing machine!).
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.
