How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Icicle Standup using multiple steps. First, we roll a slab of clay to the correct size. Then, using wooden tools, we press various lengths into the surface to create a realistic icicle texture. Then, we allow the clay to dry, ensuring it remains perfectly flat. Once dry, we bisque fire the clay to be used as a texture mold.
Next, we cut and polish the clear glass to the appropriate size. Then, we use clear glass frits to accent the details in the clay. Once the frits have been applied, we carefully place the sheet glass overtop and place the casting mold into the kiln.
We kiln fire the glass to allow the frits and the sheet glass to fuse together. During the firing, the glass is annealed. Because of this, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know the Icicle Standup will last for as long as you own the glass art.
The Icicle design is available as a Lantern and a Winterscape for alternate options of this neutral toned design. See the full collection of wintry designs in the Winter Solstice Collection.
