Vintage Ceramic Crucible


A ceramic crucible from the 1960s that was used to melt glass at very high temperatures. The interior retains a "pool" of the melted glass that appears as cracked ice and formed during the cooling process. These are hard to date because of their continued use over many decades their lack of makers marks and the fact that they are so durable and do not age. These crucibles were originally used as utilitarian and industrial items but which now possess an inherent beauty as an object. Crucibles needed to be able to withstand extreme temperatures as it was a vehicle for molten glass. After being in the kiln at high temperatures the crucible is then removed and the molten glass is poured into moulds or removed through the traditional glass blowing technique.
