How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Sailing Away Standup using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the clear glass to the appropriate size. Then, we prepare a ceramic casting mold using a spray to allow the glass to release from the mold. Next, we use coloured glass frits to accent the details in the ceramic. We carefully blend the colours to create a gradient effect, while ensuring there are no unwanted reactions between colours. Once the colours have been applied, we 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. The colour is the glass itself, you won’t ever have to worry about the colour fading or washing off. During the firing, the glass is annealed. Because of this, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know it will last for as long as you own the glass art.
