With the move to the new studio space, it’s taken a while for all of the glass-related stuff to be unpacked. As a matter of fact, we’re still missing at least one box that I can’t seem to locate. However, I think we’ve now unpacked and organized all of the glass molds, as well as the pot melt equipment that I used to make my tie dye bowls. I’ve had a hankering for a while to make another tie dye bowl, just because I haven’t made one since well before the move back at the beginning May. These photos show the result of the new one just came out of the kiln on Friday.
This tie dye bowl is made from all transparent glass in various shades of yellow, orange and red. Hmm, now that I think about it, I think that there was a little clear iridescent glass in the mix as well. To be fair, it doesn’t show up at all in this bowl, so it’s hardly worth mentioning. It seems that I wasn’t as symmetrical with the pot loading as I thought I was when I was in the middle of it, since one side is mostly yellow and the opposite side is mostly red. Still I like the way it turned out, despite missing out on the iridescent accents. If you’re interested in buying this bowl, you can find it here in the web store.
The torch working station is almost ready now, so the next big project I’ll be tackling will be more torch worked elements to use as accents and to create part sheets for dishes and plates. I’ve also got a plan for a large bowl made from clear glass with a layer of daisy petals and leaves made from torch worked elements. That one should be a fun challenge! 🙂
