Production process

Elizabeth Harris collects the surplus sheared off parts of glass from Timothy’s glass making as well as from broken shards of rejected glass items. She then colour grades them into different trays, which she stores. When a suitable subject comes to mind she chooses appropriate pieces and lays them out on a ceramic block and creates the picture of her choice. This block is lowered into a kiln and fired to 700°C for around 7 hours to soften and fuse all the pieces together. Then follows a slow cooling and annealing period to ensure that it does not shatter through cooling too quickly. The finished picture is then adhered to a backing and framed. Each piece is unique and signed and dated by Elizabeth as well as having a signed certificate. They are available in several sizes.
