Sculptures


Sculptures are up to 10 inches high and range in price from £30 to £120. Each piece is original and hand made. The sculptures are usually made by casting in a plaster mould. This often involves a number of processes.

The original shape is created using clay or similar material, This is then covered in a resin and the original shape is removed. Next, hot wax is poured into the resin shape.

When the wax is cold and set it is covered in plaster then the plaster is put over hot water to melt out the wax. The plaster mould is then ready to be filled with glass and put into the kiln Firing can take several days depending on the thickness of the shape.

This is often a somewhat fraught time because, after all that, you can finish up with a broken piece.
