Pieces in what we call the nucleosynthesis series originate from discs formed from molten glass at unusually high temperatures in the kiln. Glasses are melted together and flow into patterns evocative of cosmic images. These pieces are challenging to create and to view. Many of them have been extensively cold worked and subjected to multiple kiln firings before being finally slumped into their final forms.
