Woven Basket Medium 3 Tone Half Cut
Layne’s Woven pieces utilise the hot cane roll up technique, a labour intensive skill of his own division. This consists of several canes, each one made of multiple layers of coloured glass, laid out in a carefully considered pattern to be fused together, rolled up and twisted in the energetic blowing process. Once cool this piece is then carved using a diamond wheel to reveal the inner layers of colour. Its temperature is then raised again to be fire polished, which rids the work of any harsh lines or edges left from the cold process.
