Eggshell Thin Pâte de Verre with Shin-ichi Higuchi
Shin-ichi Higuchi takes us through the process of his creation of eggshell thin pate de verre.
A clay model is made over which plaster is placed.
The clay is then removed from the mold and this becomes the mold into
which fine glass frit is pressed before firing in a kiln.
The mold is a one use only as it is destroyed to
reveal the finished pate de verre art work.
