More Glass Experiments Going On

More glass loaded in the kiln. It's sitting on 1/8" pieces of kiln paper with shapes punched out of them...or on the shape itself for a concave effect.
The colored glass didn't work as well as the clear (see the dragonfly from the other post)

...if you hold the glass up to the light, you can see the images....



this is the back side.
I dug through all my System 96 glass to find some more transparent pieces and found a light blue and a dark red piece. They are in the kiln right now heating up -
my obsession continues....

they look fab in the light!! but i see what you mean when they are not in the light. maybe if they were thinner? maybe that is not possible. but, i like the glass stuff.

All week I was scheming to figure out how I could come to your open house and then hit Etc. thrift too. But, the snow kind of put the kabash on it all.
