The round glass ‘dots’ have been produced relying on surface tension to pull in the sharp corners to create a soft round shape. This is done by cutting small triangles from a sheet of chosen glass and firing to 815 degrees Celsius
A portion of them have then been specifically placed on the main tile in a radial pattern from the center and fused flush. The piece has then undergone a second firing at a lower temperature with the additional beads, allowing them to fuse, but stay proud. Once complete the tile was then slumped using the help of a mould.
