GlassPate de Verre

Pate de Verre

Pate de verre bowl by Suzanne O'Sullivan

I create sculptural pieces using the Pate de Verre technique.

First, I make a heat-proof mould as a structure. Next I create a paste of glass powder or granules and colouring. I then apply the glass paste to the mould, building it up bit by bit.

The piece is then transferred into the kiln and fired.

The glass melts and fuses into incredibly delicate shapes. Some of my pieces are often likened to frost or ice.
