Fused and slumped glass mountain scene bowl. Artist Amanda Taylor uses several different techniques to achieve a realistic representation of the natural beauty she sees all around her. She begins with a “blank canvas” of glass (some with a background of mountain silhouettes), then assembles the landscapes by placing glass powder where she would like to position tree trunks. The trunks are pre-fused glass powder components. All the tree branches are made from glass strings that she creates by pulling glass into very thin branch like shapes using a torch flame. Once the branches are pulled, they are arranged onto the tree trunks. Custom color combinations of crushed glass are then placed as the ground & leaves within the landscapes. The completed glass piece is then heated in a glass kiln at a low temperature to produce texture instead of a perfectly flat surface. Once the imagery is fused, the piece is slumped into the bowl shape.
