The compositions were fritted 1250[degrees]C and then ground using a ball mill for 12 hours.
The rooftop 'sail', extending some 30m above the 44th floor, waves symbolically to the opera house and the world; the cantilevered fins at either end of the building provide vertical, wind-protected slots within which Piano's wintergardens give real-air breathing space to each floor; and the smooth-bellied facade itself, fritted with baked-on ceramic dots at various scales, provides a semi-opaque ghosty-look from without, transparency from within.
Triangular panels of fritted and tinted glass, each unique, are attached directly to the steel structure so that, springing from the c rown of the drum above a garland of lights, it appears to be barely tethered.
An extremely precise vertical facade of white fritted glass automatically alters as the sun moves round, with sender louvres rising to act as glittering, emerald-edged solar shading, then fluttering back flush and crisp when the elevation falls into shadow (the white fritted glass is an outer screen; behind is a more conventional double-glazed wall with opening windows).
