April New Fused Glass Mold – Tree of Life

In keeping with my new rule of writing a blog about my molds I picked up a great mold the other day – the Tree of Life bottle slumper mold. Slumping is basically giving shape to a piece of glass. But this mold is a little different in the since that I’m not just taking it to a slump temperature (1225) because I want to pick up the tree of life design I fired it much (higher approx 1480). Plus with bottles they take a little higher temperature to slump down.

The fused glass tree of life bottles are beautiful and can be used as a spoon rest or as a candy dish or olive dish or pretty much anything you can think of.

I’ve also made several other slumped bottles with amazing textures as well.

Recycling glass into something useful and beautiful is a wonderful way of up-cycling glass – checkout my recycled glass youtube video.
