WSIU InFocus ventures to the Douglas School Art Place in Murphysboro to join glass caster Cameron Smith, as he tries something new – casting pieces for a massive column for an art show. Glass casting is a complex process, similar to metal casting, in which molten glass is poured into a mold. It is “similar to pouring honey,” says Smith. The mold is then put into an oven to gradually cool over the course of ten days, so the glass won't crack. Pioneering this new technique presented Smith with many challenges because the column was supposed to be a centerpiece in the upcoming show.
