I was inspired to recycle glass within my pottery and when I saw the results I knew I had found my niche
Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) August 16, 2009
Nicole Whitney's glass fused ceramic process begins with commonly used, traditional pottery techniques. The addition of kiln melted, broken bits of recycled glass make the process unique. It sounds simple yet the result is brilliantly different.
Each piece is handmade by collecting glass jars, beer and wine bottles, and other discarded glass which is then broken and fused into the pottery. The inherent problems associated with combining the two mediums pose many physical challenges to the structural integrity of the pieces. The result of the process is a sparkling depth of color, texture, and unique crackle glass surface; it's a delicate balance between form and function. The challenges have not stopped Paloma Pottery from pushing forward and continuously trying to find new uses for things that may otherwise be thrown away.
