Fused glass and mixed media robot. A little bit whimsical, a little bit serious ~ the perfect personality for this charming little robot.

 

This little guy belongs to a special collection, he is a Grumbler!  Grumblers are especially chatty and known to escalate to complaining if left unattended.  Their mouths are carefully wired so they cannot get too loud :)

 

Hand made from Bullseye Glass. Meticulously cut, layered, and hand-painted with kiln fired enamel.  Fused and annealed in a computer-controlled kiln. Created from a mingling of glass: white opal, gold violet opal, black opal, silver dichroic, and then sprinkled with dichroic frit for a slight shimmer.  An amazing mixed-media robot ~ one of a kind art sculpture that is perfect to adorn your table or nestle on your bookshelf.    

 

Completed with sterling silver plated wire and various adornments.  Measures approximately 5  inches tall, 2 inches wide.

 

A week-long creation process that begins by selecting compatible glass sheets which are cut, layered and fused in a kiln (an average of 16 hours to fire).  The new combination sheet glass is then cut and shaped with a glass cutter and diamond tools.  Additional glass accents are layered along with hand-painted details then back into the kiln for another firing.  Any imperfections are addressed and when necessary a third kiln firing is completed.  Now assembly begins with specialty diamond tools, traditional hand tools, sterling silver plated wire and various adornments.
