This gorgeous “one-of-a-kind” sculpture measures approx 11.5″ tall x 9″ wide x 4″ deep (including the custom made stand).
The artist designs the piece by cutting the glass to specific lengths to shape the piece then fuses the glass together in a kiln.

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.
