How It's Made:
This unique, handmade art glass piece is created over several weeks incorporating various kilnforming techniques and processes including kiln casting, kilncarving, grinding, sandblasting and polishing. Four separate kiln firings are required to complete.
- All art work is handmade by Robert Wiener in the DC Art Glass Studio. Kilnforming is a method of shaping glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Techniques used by the artist include fusing, slumping, casting, printmaking and coldworking. It is common of kilnformed glass to have slight color shifts and small "champagne" bubbles.
