Agate Jewels

By creating false agates, I can design geometrical shapes that cannot be found in  nature, that can be worn directly without requiring any particular set or structure.
The association of clay and glass seemed to me perfectly suited to my project since it allows me to recreate agates by imitating the natural process. Fluids, more or less rich in silica and of various compositions, circulate amongst rocky cavities, generating successive layers of quartz crystals after each passing, eventually creating a geode and, when the cavity is full, becoming an agate.
 The clay brings to the piece the stability required to keep the pattern in place during the firing process and to keep the glass in place during its fusion. This glass brings the piece its shine and translucency.The ceramic and the glass thus blended also enable the feel and the weight of a natural agate.

The piece is subsequently sanded and polished, as one would do for natural agates. The abrasion of the crust that encapsulates it gradually reveals the pattern of the fake stone.
