VESSEL

“Jigs and Jags”

7”H X 9.5” W

This vessel began as a 16” disc of glass stacked several layers high and fused in a kiln to create one flat disc.

The “slumping” process is where the glass is placed on a mold and warmed in the kiln until the glass takes the shape of the mold. To gain this shape is a 3 step processes using graduated sized molds to attain the shape.

The edge is ground and polished using a grinding wheel and water.

“Orion’s Belt”

7”H X 9.5” W

This vessel began as 2 pieces of sheet glass cut into 16” circles and fused in a kiln to create a single flat disc.

The “slumping” process is where the glass is placed on a mold and warmed in the kiln until the glass takes the shape of the mold. To gain this shape is a 3 step processes using graduated sized molds to attain the shape.

“Shades of Blue”

7”H X 9.5” W

This vessel began with cutting a 16” ring of sheet glass (blue) and 14” circle of white glass. A stencil was placed on one side and glass powder was sifted onto it. The piece was fused in a kiln and then the other side was stenciled.

“Cosmic Powers”

7”H X 9.5” W

This vessel began as 2 pieces of sheet glass cut into 16” circles and fused in a kiln to create a single flat disc.

The “slumping” process is where the glass is placed on a mold and warmed in the kiln until the glass takes the shape of the mold. To gain this shape is a 2 step processes using graduated sized molds to attain the shape. The piece is purposely slanted to allow for seeing the center of the vessel

 

“Blue Bubbles”

7”H X 9.5” W

This vessel began with many cutting a 16” circle, then a 2” outer ring was cut and pre-made murrine were placed within the ring. All of the components were fired to create a 16” flat circle.

The “slumping” process is where the glass is placed on a mold and warmed in the kiln until the glass takes the shape of the mold. To gain this shape is a 3 step processes using graduated sized molds to attain the shape.

The edge is ground and polished using a grinding wheel and water.

“Holy Yellow”

7”H X 9.5” W

This vessel was created by cutting a 16” disc of yellow and a 16” disc of black. Thin strips of glass called stringers were laid on one side and the pieces were fired. Then the piece was turned over and stringers were added to the other side and it was fired again.

The “slumping” process is where the glass is placed on a mold and warmed in the kiln until the glass takes the shape of the mold. To gain this shape is a 3 step processes using graduated sized molds to attain the shape.

The edge is ground and polished using a grinding wheel and water.

 

This vessel began by cutting a 14” circle and offsetting it to allow the addition of pre-made murrine to be added along the rim and throughout the center. It was then fired to make one flat 16” circle
