I’ve had several items fresh from the kiln however, most of them are items my customers know and love, mainly my aspens! Instead of showing them again I thought I’d show you another fused glass artwork that is more abstract. I think of it as my earth sculpture. It’s a screen melt that is just beautiful and about 1/2 an inch thick. I’m not sure if you can truly see how beautiful it is. I also added little dichroic dots to give it even more character.
A screen melt is created by placing glass on top of a screen or a mold with lots of holes, then taking that up to 1700 degrees until it all melts through into a stainless steel ring lined with fiber paper (so it won’t stick). It takes about two days to fire then I coldworked it with pads and refired it to give it a smoother edge.
I think it’s pretty amazing and I look forward to hearing what you think.
Keeping my Kiln Warm,
