Kiln Formed Glass
Kiln formed glass uses the extreme heat of a glass kiln to join and shape the glass, and includes the techniques of fusing, slumping and casting. I relish the opportunity to express textures and 3 dimensional form, utilising the addition of lighting and customised display methods to enhance the overall contemporary designs.
My research of themes and topics are the same as my stained glass a panels, however, the designing allows me to consider more sculptural outcomes. I like to consider how the piece will interact with its surroundings and how I can enhance its appearance by the use of integrated LED lighting, structural frameworks and the materiality of the inspirations.
