I picked up a random white to make the cone for this snowcone pendant. The glass ended up being not very white at all. No wonder it was nice to work with (white glass tends to be tricky).
Posting this to burn into my memory the importance of double-checking / really knowing the colours I’m working with. Even though this didn’t work out, it is my last snowcone of the season but candy corns call for white too!
Goodbye summer. Happy Fall!
I love working with Glass Alchemy’s “Alchemy Mint”. Here it is as a backing and loop on an implosion. I put black dots onto a flattened piece of clear glass and imploded them into the clear, creating the effect you see. Then I added the minty colour!
I hesitate to ask the internet such a question but … people have been asking me to make giant holes in pipe bowls. Which has me wondering if this the preference of many? Or just people I know?
Here are a couple of glass cat paws I made. I like to make them as a warmup on the torch. Working on adding more detail (like the claws) but want to keep them cartoonish and fun!
Working on applying full colour to pipes again. This one is wrapped with Alchemy Mint from Glass Alchemy! I broke the top of it just as I was about to transfer it to the kiln. It was repaired and now is a little square. I don’t view failed glass pieces as a waste of time, practice is practice and having fun is what it is all about!
The classic question flameworkers get asked is, “how long did it take you to make that?” … the answer is however long the artist has been blowing glass!
