Each piece of kiln-formed glass I produces is individual and unique with underlying complexities.
Emma starts by designing and firing a series of samples. Once she is satisfied that the sample is going in the right direction she creates the object to be fully fired and finished. With three dimensional pieces Emma uses complementary designs, focusing on both the external and internal face of the glass, using the interplay between the two surfaces using a combination of design, colour and form. Her three dimensional pieces can require 4 or 5 firings, depending on their complexity.
Each piece is then finished using a combination of cold working processes, including sandblasting, grinding and polishing.
