Flavie Audi's glass bricks, from her 2nd solo show at the gallery in Fitzroy Square, are now available for purchase!
The bricks are created using dichroic glass which was originally manufactured for the aerospace industry. This process utilises a a highly technical vacuum method to produce a multi-layered coating on the glass. Quartz Crystal and Metal Oxides are vaporised with an electron beam gun in a vacuum chamber which causes the vapour to float upward and attach itself to the surface of the glass, forming a crystal structure. This process is what gives the bricks their unusual colours and patterns.
