Paula L. Mandel

Glass sculpture is my newest medium.

The kiln-cast works are first created in clay or wax.
I then create a plaster/silica mold of this image,
take out the clay or wax and fill the mold with crushed glass.
The glass becomes a solid sculpture in the kiln.
Other works consist of many layers of glass fused together
at a lower temperature, which provides a painterly effect
as the colors react to each other.

Then there are works which use plate glass which is ground, drilled and
sand-blasted, then combined with non-traditional media from nature or
my workshop. Each piece opens itself up to adornments with colored
pencil, paint, metals, etc. as I create 3-D paintings.
