I have cut up some mosaic glass tiles and placed them in the bottom of a bowl made from black clay. The clay looks red at the moment, because it is still unfired. I will bisque fire tonight, and hopefully the glass tiles will fuse and the clay will turn black in the kiln!
I have used this technique before, and it sometimes takes a few firings before the glass melts properly without any bubbles or lumps.
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.
