The Night that I Hear the Sounds of Bells
At the night of Christmas Eve
The moon lightens up the reindeer sleigh
And the moon has dressed like a Santa
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.
