Heart – Heart on Stand with Clear Glass Center
This “one-of-a-kind” glass heart on stand measures approx 11.5″ Tall X 9″ Wide X 4″ Deep.
These measurements include the hand-made metal stand.
The glass pieces are pre-made using “Millefior” which is a glasswork technique which produces distinctive decorative patterns on glassware.
Kiln-formed Art Glass – involves fusing glass of various shapes, in multiple layers, in a computer-controlled glass kiln. Fired at temperatures up to 1700 F, each art glass piece is fired to a temperature in excess of 12 hours and, depending on the complexity of the piece, may be fired 5-6 times before completion! Using compatible glass, traditional tools and artistic vision, the artist can shape the piece either before it is placed into the kiln or between firings. Annealing, or slow cooling of the fired glass piece is achieved by slowly cooling of the piece via the computer-controlled kiln. Without proper annealing, the glass is brittle and easily breakable. This general process is the common denominator throughout most of the glass art and jewelry crafted by Larry Pile.
