wax -> glass

this is the story of a snail looking at a person from around a corner.
. wax shape made with hands and lino cutting tools
. then a mould is made from grog+plaster+happiness which surrounds the wax
. then the wax is melted out
. then glass is put into a feed at the top (or, in this case, bottom (of the vessel))
. then put in kiln, glass melts into shape, cools down
. then crumble the mould off the glass
. then you have a snail and a person making eye-contact around a vessel made from peach+pink glass
