How it's made

MATERIALS: Fused glass, silicone feet

These fused glass art coasters are made of over 30 individual pieces of Spectrum 96 Art Glass.

The pieces of the pattern are each cut by hand from larger sheets of art glass.

Each piece is individually ground until they all fit together perfectly.

The pieces are then placed in a specialised glass kiln, with a clear layer of glass on top. They are fused at 800ºC to create a single 6mm thick piece of flat glass for each coaster. This takes around 16 hours.

Once cooled, these flat pieces are then burnished with polishing pads.
I then add stringers - thin strips of glass that sit on the surface to add another layer of depth and interest. Again they're kiln-fused overnight for a fire polish.

At each firing stage, the glass is annealed and cooled overnight for maximum strength and durability.

While the production process is painstaking and lengthy, it's the only way to get the wonderful finished look of glass art.

Each coaster has 4 silicone clear feet to protect the table.

About this work

I designed the Spiccato theme pattern and green-based colour combination of this collection.

Each Spiccato piece is one of a kind - I never do identical objects. Even where the design is similar, they all have unique colour combinations and small differences.

During the glass fusing, small air bubbles can appear and become trapped within the glass. This is a natural occurrence that adds to the beauty of handmade glass products.

Care of your glass

Even the strongest glass can break, so please handle your coasters with care.

When needed, dust it with a lint-free cloth, or wipe with a soft, damp cloth. Don't use an abrasive cleaner as this could scratch it.

Because of the handmade nature of glass, please don’t put them in a microwave or dishwasher.
