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. So that's how I get eye-catching COSMIC decorative surface on each CELESTIAL BODY.
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.
