Some glass boxes for a trip to Utopia

Finished some little cast frit boxes to test out my plans for A Day Trip to Utopia.

I've been experimenting with borrowing images, objects and ideas from other places and bringing them together to tell a story. Something about wat we dream for, what we have, the things that get left over from our travels.

This is the first time I've tried firing the 'Venus' image. Pleased with the colours, but working on the composition.

The frit boxes are a delight to make - I love the necessary logic of the mould-making and casting process, and also the cold working; shaping something into the form I want. However, I will be working to minimise that otherwise the whole thing will become way too expensive
