I'm opening the kiln to see Rainbow Remnants as a single piece for the first time.
This piece was inspired by the colour bars in my workshop.
An abstract work, it contains a wide range of art glass rainbow colours. Once complete, it'll be a large rectangular piece of glass wall art.
I held a vote on instagram to finalise the name ... Salvaged Spectrum? Conglomeration? Second Life? Rainbow Remnants was the winner :)
It uses the many offcuts of glass I have saved and sorted from previous projects, so they're all fairly small pieces. It was more complicated than I anticipated to fit perfectly, but I think it'll be worth the effort!
I fitted together the 127 separate pieces of glass on the kiln shelf - like a jigsaw - with a clear piece on the top.
Then the glass was fully fused to make a single piece.
Opening the kiln here, 127 pieces went in - you see only one come out 😁
Looks good to me!
