Warm Horizon

Skies and sunsets

I make a quantity of these Warm Horizon series which are my favourite pieces to put together. I enjoy experimenting with different methods and the outcome can be quite unpredictable but there is always some positive anticipation when I open the kiln lid.  Thoughts and inspiration for these pieces come from hot embers, sunsets and skies with yellows, oranges and blues.

Positive outcomes

I have learned that failures or mistakes can lead to pleasing results. Several years ago I was disappointed to open the kiln lid after a firing only to find that a circular piece had broken in two. This can be a result of multiple high temperature firings which cause the glass to become brittle and make pieces susceptible to shattering or breaking. I later wondered about fusing them together at a lower temperature with the small broken clear glass pieces between the two halves which is how this unusual and unique look came about.
