Hot glass shaping is a process which requires skills, patience and determination. Glass is melt in the furnace and all pieces are made from 1150 degrees Celsius temperature liquid glass. After gathering glass on the blowing pipe I am using different colours of glass powders and frits. To shape it I have just few seconds until it is already solid and too cold to shape. When the piece design is finished but still hot on the pipe, I create a reduction atmosphere on the glass surface, which occurs when the amount of available oxygen is reduced, by taking a short flash with a torch.
The Colour Jam collection is dominated by bright colours, transparency and light. The palette of colours and shades from nature is fixed in the glass and everything is amplifield with the shiny and glossy surfaces. Just like the freshness after recent summer rain. In these accsessories I have put everything: sunlight, flower beds, raindrops, bright summer days and warm nights.
Everything that you can match on yourself and remember beautiful summertime moments.
When all pieces after 12 hours were annealed and grinded, they were attached to posts and a silver necklace.
All the pieces are shaped and made with love and passion, so every decoration is absolutely different and unique piece of wearable art.
