Hot glass

I’ve been exploring melting finely powdered glass onto copper and steel (enamelling) this week. After making lots of small test pieces, and working out what works and why, I finished the week with some larger pieces on copper.
This piece is quite traditional on my favourite grid theme –

Whilst this piece is more experimental using thin crushed and folded copper sheet and incorporating firescale which is produced when copper is heated.
