* Glass Cairns *
Thomas Spake Glass Stone Cairns. Each glass stone is made individually, based off a stone that he has collected while hiking. He uses a recipe of tiny colored glass chips to mimic stones from his collection. During creation, the glass stones are heated in a kiln to 1200 degrees and picked up, one at a time, on a base glass stone, and then heated and manipulated to enhance the unearthed look of these small sculptures. Approximately 4" high x 2.25"d x 2.25" w.
" These glass stone cairns were inspired by my childhood days of stacking rocks as well as my adult appreciation of the timelessness of this building practice, creating a landmark or ceremony and the its cross-cultural traditions throughout time and history."
