Glass studio, Week 2
Glassyness project. This mind map was accompanied by Almond brittle, Amber and Damselfly wings..all kinda glassy
The amber reminded me a bit of Emma Varga's glass which I love.
Making brittle is very glass like in the way that it is liquid, you can mould it or pull it into long threads at the right temperature and when it cools you can shatter it like glass in its super cool liquid state.
We also presented the first bit of research on our time line,
i found that 30,000 bc was a tad early for any 'glass' as such but humans were using Obsidian.
a naturally formed glass from volcanoes
