You take your carved wax model, and cover it in plaster...
... then the wax is boiled or steamed out of the mold...
It's called lost wax, but I still see it... everywhere!
And then it all goes into the kiln. Next week we see the results.

Washington, DC's Maurine Littleton Gallery had a great show, showcasing artworks of glass icons Harvey Littleton, Richard Marquis, Judith La Scola, Therman Statom, John Littleton, Kate Vogel and Colin Reid along with WGS artists Tate, Marquart and Janis.
The three DC artists had a great year, with a lot of interest from collectors, curators and other glass artists!
