This textured cast glass black box is viewed from above into an architectural space, the allure of gold draws you in but a golden grid prevents access to the deeper interior of the inner space. The grid is replicated on the sides of the austere exterior. The highly polished top edge is the meeting point of the exterior and the interior, a threshold between the two.
This is cast in dense black glass. The base was open cast first with 23.5ct gold. Textured wax walls were built onto the base and the resulting form was cast in plaster. Then the wax was steamed out (lost wax casting). It was fired again with a crucible of glass to create the whole piece. The mould was broken away, then the rim was polished on 6 grits and a cork belt to give it a high shine.
