I am working with my glass sculptures in my Studio in Randers, Denmark. The glass technique I use is “Pâte de Verre". It is an ancient glassworking technique rediscovered in France in the Art Nouveau period in the late 1800’s.
I start with making an original model in clay or wax. Then I make a casting and remove the model. Afterwards a fine glass paste is packed into the mold in many layers.
After firing the glass in a glass kiln for 3 days the sculpture is ready for finishing. All the sculptures are unique since the mold is lost in the process of creating the image.
