Cast Glass Process

Blown glass is a favorite medium of mine but I also like the challenge of casting it. The lost wax process I use for cast glass starts the same as for the bronzes. First I make a rubber mold from my original sculpture. From the rubber mold I make a wax model for the final mold which is made with a special high fire plaster. The plaster is poured over the wax model in a wood box. After the plaster is hardened the wax can be melted out with steam. After the plaster mold has dried for a week it's loaded with glass in the form of powdered lead crystal then kiln baked for one to two weeks. Once the glass and plaster have cooled the plaster can be crumbled away from the glass. The piece is cleaned up with diamond cutters and polishers before it is finished.Richard Mole
