Outta the kiln...

These are the florals I was talking about yesterday (I think it was yesterday). I was having some problems getting a good picture and finally got the tripod out and these turned out better. The one on the left has silver wrapped on the base, under the flowers and the oneon the right is an experiment with dichroic. I think I need to read up on that a bit more.

I'd save the best for last, but I'm so anxious to post this. It is Caliente glass from Canada and very similar to Gaffer. It is hand pulled and I love the effects that result, just from the "plain" glass. The handles are even. which is a major accomplishment in itself! And the Foster Fire release, again is amazing, not much residue to wrestle out in a vessel... YES!

These are what resulted yesterday from just trying to make something interesting with some of my favorite colors... Teal and Topaz. I'm not thrilled with them, but will persevere and maybe wind up with another nifty charm bracelet full of various styles of beads, with just colors to tie them together.

Teal and amber...that's a nice combination I would not have thought of. They have a light and airy classic look to them..very feminine and sweet. The vessel is really cool too. It seems there is a lot of these new handmade glasses popping up since Val pioneered it. It's nice to get new possibilities!
