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


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: dense white opal, french vanilla opal, black opal, red dichroic, and then sprinkled with dichroic frit for a slight shimmer.  The dark halos created on this piece come from a fascinating chemical reaction between the glasses used.


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 3/4 inches wide.


A week long creation process that begins by selecting compatible glass sheet which is 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.
