Kiln Cast Glass - Pate de Verre

Kiln Cast Glass

Patty Roberts works with the glass kiln casting technique of Pate de Verre. Literally translated from French, it means paste of glass.

The process includes creating a model, making a mold, placing thin layers of a crushed glass paste with in the mold, and then firing the piece in a kiln.

Patty works primarily with open-faced molds creating dimension with color placement and sculptural effects of metal inclusion.
