This is a small bowl (16cm diameter, 7cm high) made using the Pate de verre technigue.

A wax mould was made of the bowl and seahorses. A silica/plaster mould was then formed around the outside of the wax mould and strengthened with fibreglass mat.

The wax was then removed with a steamer and crushed glass mixed with enough water to hold together was packed into the mould.

Finally, the mould and glass was fired to 740 deg C.
