Process & Production

Kiln-cast glass. The shape was modelled in 3D CAD and the former milled out of a high density model board. A refractory plaster mould was created from this former, into which glass billets were stacked before being loaded into a kiln and fired. During this process, the glass billets melt and flow into the void of the mould, taking up the shape or the original model. Subsequently, the glass is removed from the mould, cleaned, shaped, ground and polished.
