Because I cannot really totally sustainably make a piece of glass art, I am going to head down the route of making a piece that will raise awareness. I am also only going to use things that I already have. I am determined not to purchase anything extra but work around design issues to find a solution.
I have decided to make a clock - to show that time is ticking away for the planet and that we, as consumers, need to act now to help keep it safe.
The clock will be made out of the mini wine bottles, I have a clock part in my box of oddments that I can use.... the design will come to me as I put it together. I have a rough idea of a design, but sometimes when working with glass - especially recycled glass, you have to roll with the punches and change the design at the drop of a hat.
I thought I might like to put some numbers on the clock, so while the kiln was on and melting the wine bottles flat, I added some little pieces of broken bottle to the corner with different things added to try and see if I could make marks.
