Ref: W274
Making of triangular piece W274. This piece is made on its side, which gets a bit complex thinking about how I want it to look and how it will move so it looks good when turned upright (to see the cutting and printing see W283).
 
  • This piece was difficult to assemble in the kiln, the mathematics / geometry in this is very complex.
 
  • Detail of multilamination.
 
  • Dam assembly.
 
  • Careful heating.
 
  • Note how the pre-planned assembly is now moving and undulating the layers. This piece is partly devitrified.
 
  • A perfect firing fitting mould exactly, it’s taken many years of careful trial error and mathematics to achieve this, my note books go back some 30 years detailing carefully every firing. Things though don't always go so well!
