Girts Gailans – clay with a touch of glass

As well as strong shapes and tactile textures, there is one material Girts loves to add to his work. Glass. Stained glass. Fused into or onto the clay, different effects are created according to the temperature, the clay , the glaze, and sometimes, it seems, according to the whims of the kiln gods. The results are always unique and cannot be reproduced. Ever!
