Ceramics and Glass Gallery
EFOA has over twenty members who work with glass and clay, either as their main medium or as something incorporated into their other work. The range of work produced is rich and diverse, demonstrating the wonderful flexibility that the media offer. In recent times members of this group have started to meet via zoom to support one-another and to share thoughts about our work. We decided to use our gallery to share images of our work in progress, demonstrating the complexity of what we do, and the skill our members have. This is a starting point, and over time we will focus on individual makers in more detail.
A silicone mould taken from a piece of Silver Birch which Pat will use as the centre of a glass pot.
After encasing the wax in plaster/quartz, steaming out the wax and filling the void with glass, the piece was cast in the kiln. This shows one piece prior to polishing, one part polished, and one fully polished.
