Small Stuff

I haven’t posted any glass work, partly because I’ve been busy with other things, and partly because I *still* have a trouble getting good images to post.  I’ve been experimenting with dots and colors, which can lead to an array of results when you’re flameworking.  Here’s some of my recent work:

The bead on the left (an attempt at an implosion bead) is still on the mandrel.  (If you’re unfamiliar with flameworking, it involves winding molten glass rods around a coated metal mandrel.  The cooled glass, when removed from the mandrel and cleaned, has a nice hole in the middle, and so can be used for beading.)  The others were just strung on the mandrel for picture-taking purposes.

The bead to the left of the fish is Double Helix glass, which is the coolest stuff ever.  I never know what’s going to come out of the flame, but the results are almost always beautiful!
