I love playing with sea life. This was created using molds I took from small actual creatures. Overlaying a sandy background, they're layered over a piece of azure blue dichroic glass. A reminder of sunny days on the beach.
Dichroic glass is a fused glass containing various metal oxides, giving the piece different colors through reflection and refraction. Colors often shift with the angle of view. Dichroic glass was first created by NASA to serve as heat shields for the space shuttle. I refer to it as “glass lasagna” as it is baked in layers in a kiln.
Silver Art Clay is made from silver reclaimed from photography and X-ray film, combined with an organic binder. It can be formed just like clay: rolled, stamped, coiled, joined, and is then dried. Then it is fired by kiln or flame and the organics burn out, leaving either fine or sterling silver depending upon the formula. It is versatile and fun to work!
