Each step is a testament to the time and meticulous attention to detail .
Creating it was a 7-step process.
Creating the Mosaic Tiles: A piece of opaque black glass was hand painted with iridescent mica paints. It was fired in a kiln to a temperature of 1375 degrees to permanently adhere the paint to the glass, and was then cut into small pieces to be used to create the body of the horse.
Selecting Glass for the Bowl: For the body of the bowl, two 10″ circles of glass were cut, one lime green glass and the other clear.
Creating the image: The body of the horse was drawn on the green glass and the tiles were carefully cut and assembled to fit this shape, leaving a border of space between them. They were glued to hold them in place until they were fused in the kiln.The green glass was then placed on top of the clear circle in preparation for firing.
Fusing in the Kiln: The two layers were placed in a kiln and heated to 1475 F, the temperature at which point the glass melts and the layers fused together. The piece was held at this temperature long enough for the tiles to melt into the green glass but not so much that they lost their shape entirely.
Shaping the Bowl: At this point the piece was still flat. One more firing was required to transform it into a dish. To do this the flat, fused glass circle was placed in the kiln on top of a mold and heated to 1250 degrees. At this temperature the glass softened and gravity caused the square to sink into the mold and assume its final shape.
