Traditional techniques of working with frit and powdered glass to create three-dimensional objects tend to be labor-intensive, as with pate de verre. Over the past five years, Lois Manno has focused her creative energy toward developing a different way to work with powders and frit, one that opens up an entire new world of creativity.
By combining powdered glass with a dry binder, water, and a liquid medium, she has developed a system that turns messy powder into a manageable material with the consistency of clay. The resulting Modeling Glass has a smooth, firm texture, stores almost indefinitely, and is not sticky.
No freezing is required, nor are molds involved. The material can be thinned with water into a paste, or can be formed into a shape and dried before firing. This dry state is where much of the cleanup can be done using sandpaper, almost eliminating the need for coldworking. Modeling Glass can hold a great deal of detail at tack-fuse temperatures, and can also be used to create interesting effects
