Glass Fossils

  • Glass Fossils on Light Box
  • I am experimenting with encasing type within glass. I pour a layer of hot glass between graphite blocks and then place different letters and words on top of the molten glass. The letters were cut from various materials; aluminum foil, cardboard, marble, paper, fabric, wood and more. As the material burns, another ladle of hot glass is poured on top to enclose the burning medium, capturing a moment in the material's transformation.
