Jozee, very simple (ha) I poor hot liquid glas 1250 oC, with big metal spoons into sand moolds.
You can see a bit how it works on my website www.vrouwinglas.nl click on atelier (studio). I work in a studio in Amsterdam. Already have my own kiln not ready to work with that. Looked for the word grouper, can't find it, can you give me another word.

Thankyou both for compliments

Wow I just came back from your site- RESPECT!
I'm now wondering how you control what comes out in the casting.( that's me)

A grouper is a fish. Thanks for asking. I just found out a lot about them I didn't know in this wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grouper

Your work is beautiful- I like the portrait of you in your denim shirt looking so proud of your outcome! ;-)
