After the glass is cut into the desired shape, enamels are painted onto the glass surface. Enamels are blends of metal oxides, and we make some of them ourselves in order to fine-tune texture, opacity and hue. After the enamel dries, each Momo Glassworks piece is painstakingly detailed with inclusions such as copper, mica, and aluminum. A second round of enamels is applied. The pieces are then fired, sometimes multiple times.
From the Liquid collection, Aqua drops, utilizing recycled glass. This simple, organic line recalls, with its varied texture and bubbles, the liquid state of glass. As if its design were a memory, frozen in place, of the precise moment in the kiln when it changed states, became honey-like, trapped oxygen welling up inside it. Each piece, then, is an improvisation of heat and the alchemical collaboration between glass and enamel oxides coated within.

Photography note: I just got a new fancy dancy camera, and am still learning its quirks. Especially the defocus function. So, some of the photos will show the forefront nice and crisp while the background is out of focus. I'm not trying to be artsy. Probably the best photo of the earrings is the one "Real Close" one. Still trying to get the hang of getting a front headshot, with the earring in focus.
