Australian cave art fused glass tile
$40.00 / Sold Out
4.5" x 6.5" fused glass display tile, depicting pictographs from an Australian cave, of a "Wandjina", cloud and rain spirits from Australian Aboriginal mythology.
The crackle glass part of these tiles are made first, using multiple layers of powder glass frit, with a clear backing piece, so it's transparent when held up to the light. I then reproduce images of cave drawings and petroglyphs and burn them onto a silkscreen, and then screen the images onto the top layer of glass, by pressing fine glass powder through the screen, then fire them again in the kiln at a low tack-fuse temperature.
Signed and dated on the back.
I use all Bullseye 90COE soft glass.
