Your Manipulated Horse is one of a series and will arrive signed & numbered. The Series is handcrafted by artist Newy Fagan, who has pioneered in the rediscovery of the most ancient glass processes in the contemporary kiln formed glass movement. The Series was started in 1987.
Each kiln formed glass horse requires fusing at temperatures exceeding 1450 degrees. At a full fuse, the different layers of compatible glass (which form the design) melt into one thickness. While wearing heavy zetex gloves, Newy must remove the heated shelf containing the flat horse, and in under 30 seconds, lift out two legs with a spatula. The horse is then quickly shaped, uprighted and transferred into a second kiln for annealing, which is the controlled cooling of glass to relieve stress. All are exclusively handcrafted by the artist.
You can include one of the following markings on your horse: Sun on Chest, Heart on Chest, Crescent Moon & Stars on Chest, Spots on Rump or a Saddle. Please Specify under Special Instructions.
