Eluned Glyn is a woman on a mission. She hates the idea of beautiful antiques ending up in a charity store, broken to pieces. Just because they got destroyed, doesn’t mean that they can’t be rescued. Eluned knew that with a little love, she could create something even more beautiful and unique than the original. Check it out!
Eluned first starts by finding interesting broken pieces from ceramics that will fit together nicely.
Then she takes out a pad of paper and attempts to move the pieces into their original shape.
Her design in hand, she then reconstructs the pieces into a block of clay. Giving the pieces their original form as best as possible.
Next, Eluned uses the new item to make a plaster mold.
The glassware is then cast with earthenware slip and fired three times in the kiln to complete the body of work.
By repeating the process, entire unique sets are created.
With each piece telling its own personal story.
“By using recycled pieces, my work echoes old China from my grandmother’s dresser that comes to life again in the reconstruction process.”
