These kiln cast boxes are created using the stack-around-the core method. The box gets built upside down with the last four layers of glass being stacked on top, which is actually the bottom of the box. They spend up to 100 hours in the kiln! After they finish firing, I “cold-work” the piece using sanding and grinding tools to create smooth surfaces.
