Ceramic & Glass Pendant.


I came up with another design experimenting with my glass and ceramics. I liked this one so much that its actually in my etsy shop. Click here for details. The process involved with this is me hand-forming my clay into a heart shape and carving out the center for the glass to go in. I then bisque fire the heart in my kiln. After the piece has cooled in the kiln, I then glaze the outside of the heart (this one with a white glaze) and put tiny pieces of different colored glass in the center. The 2nd firing melts and fuses the glass into the clay and when it cools, the glass sometimes crackles leaving a pretty cool effect. I've actually made quite a few different pendants and the outcome has been fascinating. Its like Christmas when I open my kiln - I get so excited because I never quite know how the piece will turn out. This one is one of my favorites!
