Poem of this glass art composed by Mellow Glass:

The Boat of the Moon

The moon in December
In golden colour of paddy rice field
Glows like an amber gemstone
Such a beautiful crescent moon

月の舟

12月の月
美しい稲穂のような色でもあり
琥珀のような色でもある
美しい三日月

 

How does Mellow Glass create her whimsical glass objects?

  • Using clay to create the shapes as a prototype.
  • Moulding the clay with fireproof plaster and carefully remove the clay from the plaster mould.
  • Draw motifs and apply colours to the plaster.
  • Fill the plaster mould with grainy powdered glass and press in the mould tightly.
  • Melt the glass in an electric furnace and let it cool down slowly.
  • Hand-hammer and break the plaster mould. Gently remove the plaster and take the glass out.
  • Apply repetitive polishing works and finish off with a water-proof paper.
  • It is impossible to duplicate the objects because the plaster mould has to be broken each time. Therefore, they are all one-of-a-kind glass objects with a lot of time-consuming manual procedures.
  • Each single piece of glass objects needs to take 30-50 days to finish and is handled with exceptional care during the time-consuming procedures.
