"Crown of Thorns"

This crown of thorns has been fused using three different colours of recycled wine bottle glass; olive glass for the stems, green for the leaves and colourless for the spiky thorns. The strands have been interwoven then fused together. Sharp ends have been left sharp to depict the thorns on the crown that Jesus wore prior to and during the crucifixion (hence using bottle glass as it rarely gives a rounded edge when fused).

Type of glass used: Recycled bottle glass

Type of kiln used: Skutt firebox 14
