Autumn mist and ferns – part three; glass

fern glass 3The ferns are changing colour every day now. I am still busy taking their impressions.
It occurred to me that incorporating glass in the clay may look nice.fern glass 4
And a way of doing that may be to use mosaic tesserae. It is worth a try, so here I am scraping away clay to create a little pool for them to lie in. fern glass 2

I want to prevent the glass from floating across the bowl any old way during the bisque firing when temperature will reach 1050 C and the glass will melt….fern glasshere’s hoping.


About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.
