My name is Patty Roberts and I work with the glass kiln casting technique of Pate de Verre. Literally translated from French, it means paste of glass.
The process starts by creating a model shaped from clay. After the design elements have been added a plaster material is poured over the original to make the mold.
After the mold is dry, the clay is removed and three layers of glass paste are firmly packed into place. The paste is made from crushed glass mixed with a binding agent. The piece is then finished by firing the piece in a kiln.
