I have just sent out a mail with order information to all people on the Moonglass waiting list as I have it.
If you did not receive a mail from me, but believe that you applied for this list,
please contact me and I will send you the mail info.
It`s been a long wait, longer than I was also expecting – I have been so busy over the last few months, putting together a work method for my new non-shattering ceramic material, Moonglass.
Everything is new, I had to rearrange my work space, and also do much testing, so I can predict my work-pace with it. But now I`m so excited to announce, I`ll finally be able to accept orders for it from now on – so to everyone on the Moonglass waiting list: look forwards to the first order information via e-mail from me – VERY SOON!
About moonglass: It`s a completely new ceramic my father and I have invented.
It is similar to porcelain in look and feel, but has a big plus of it being a resilient, non-shattering ceramic, and also it can show higher degrees of translucency. Read the whole story.
Some Moonglass traits:
High casting detail, Cold and heavy to the touch, Can be cast as thin as porcelain, High translucency, Shatter resilient, Tough as stone, Non toxic (but not a children`s toy, these are collectible dolls), Green to the environment, Ceramic.
Charlotte is on her way to Miami, and will exhibit next month at the Bazel Art Fair.
She is a 52cm porcelain `Faberge` type doll with a Music box mechanism installed in her stomach, turning a 3cm tall carousel at her upper waist.
For a glimpse at the turning carousel please scrawl to the video below.
For inquiries about her please contact Copro Galley directly.
More photos soon available in the Gallery section on-site.
Moonglass – because the ceramic looks like what the moon is made of (the pearly/silvery one in the night sky). And `glass` because of the great level of translucency possible to achieve with it.
I had this name in my heart over the last months, and since everyone that heard it and saw the casts seemed to agree, and since my father seems to like it too, that`s what it`s called from now on!
Thank you for all the lovely mails and congratulations wishes about this new material, and waiting list requests!
I am now trying to reply all mails, but it`s taking quite a toll on my time, so please if you would like to be on the waiting list, and be the first to be able to order the first Moonglass dolls, please send your mail with `Moonglass waiting list` in the title, and I will automatically add you to the waiting list. So please rest assured, that If you sent a mail (preferably my hotmail address) you are already on this list, even if I did not reply right away :)
Some Moonglass traits:
high casting detail, cold and heavy to the touch, can be cast as thin as porcelain, high translucency, shatter resilient, strong (comparable to the strength of most rigid plastics), non toxic (but not a children`s toy, these are collectible dolls), green to the environment.
There seems to already be some rumor about the dolls being unbreakable – this is untrue, and I do not claim this – please no throwing of dolls on the floor, I put allot of work into them! but yes, unbreakable for all practical purpose of normal use, and yes, no shattering on any unfortunate collision impact.
Edit: answering questions: yes it is Ceramic, and no, not a plastic :)
