Artist Statement: Lost Wax Glass Casting Method: I begin by constructing a plaster/silica mold of a wax figure that I design. The wax must be steamed out of the mold to later be filled with molten glass. The empty mold is placed in my kiln and topped with a crucible (usually a clay pot with a hole) filled with glass. The glass slowly drips into the mold during a multi-day firing. At the end of the long firing and cool down, the fun begins—I break open the mold and the cast piece comes to life.
