This hand thrown porcelain vessel features a deep amethyst glaze with a sprinkle of gold luster. The lid was originally sculpted in porcelain clay. The process of cast glass is a lengthy one. A silicon mold is taken from the fired original. Once the mold is made, a liquid wax is poured into the mold. Once set up the silicon mold is removed and the now wax sculpture is covered with a thick coat of a plaster type substance... "investment mold". This is now put into a kiln with lead crystal glass, in various colors, atop the mold. The kiln heats up to approximately 1500 degrees as the glass melts into the mold. After over a day of cooling the mold is removed and the glass is cleaned.
