Photographer's Note

What , I can hear you say , is this ?

Well this is a 'gob' ( its true, honestly ) of molton glass at about 1400c, attached to the end of a long steel bar, being poured into a sand mould of a child's hand and foot. This cools overnight, when it sets to a beautiful clear piece of glass, with a sand textured base.

Taken on a tour of England's only major lead crystal producer, this was quite an attraction, in that it was up close and personal !
