A nice chunk of glass! This 8x8 clock "Pate De Verre" glass clock was made using bits of glass amid a sea of crushed clear glass. Before it was put in the kiln it was about 3/4 of an inch thick. During firing, it softened up, and 'glued' itself together into one smooth cohesive slab of glass, just a little less than 1/2" thick.

Comprised of cobalt blues, aventurine greens, iridized and sparkling clear glass pieces, there is still a translucency to this piece that I have highlighted with the brilliant coloring from the back of a CD. I use only top of the line Bullseye fusible compatible glass for all of my fusing projects, assuring you the best in color and lasting quality.

Created by a Self Representing Artist, making works of art for over 30 years, with 10 years of experience in creating one of a kind original fused creations. All of my works pass safety tests and will withstand many years of enjoyment.
