Part 2 video - 'Indicator' glass series - 24th Apr 2020

In this next video I will show you the mold making process to create plaster/silica molds for my latest glass casting project, a new series of cast glass artworks called 'Indicators'. Born out of the need to be resourceful during the Covid 19 pandemic, I am casting a new small series of glass artworks using 'reclaimed' studio glass. Recycling the lead crystal off-cuts from gallery glass pieces will enable me to offer the 'Indicator' pieces direct from my studio and website

In this video the molding process for creating kiln molds from plaster and silica materials will be thoroughly demonstrated, as will steaming wax from the molds, selecting and preparing the lead crystal for kiln firing and loading the kiln.

Check out my last video (part 1) where I discuss glass colour selection, my thought process behind designing a new series and share how I work with wax for the method of lost wax casting.

Part 3 will reveal the cast lead crystal pieces. I will divest the cast glass from the molds and look at glass polishing techniques.

I am taking expressions of interest for this small series as they will be limited to stocks of reclaimed lead crystal glass that I have on hand. To register your interest in purchasing an 'Indicator' piece please feel welcome to call or email me.
