What is ArtGlass Clay?

Glass Clay has been around in one form or another since 3000BC.  In Richard La Londe’s book, Richard La Londe and Friends, he gives a formula Egyptian clay or Faience.  The result gives a hand moldable clay that after firing becomes solid glass.  It is a great article and I highly recommend this book for any glass enthusiast.

My ArtGlass Clay uses more modern materials that offer much more opportunities for a wider range of colors.  I crush fusible glass to a fine powder, add binding agents to create my formula of glass clay.
