|My pieces of glass waiting to be fired|
This is the blank I made... well done to Caroline who correctly guessed Poppies! When I was sat down designing I was thinking of big flowers and just ended up with poppies, I think Remembrance Sunday must have subconsciously paid its part.
For my first go I'm quiet happy with how this turned out though I'm not that keen on the bubbles and think I may have to alter my firing schedule next time..also I wanted the petals to be more separate... I guess its all about experimentation at this point.
I wasn't just setting out to make a flat piece, nope, time for another first.. slumping! I bought a soap dish mold and, with a bit of trepidation, I put that and the glass back in the kiln....
Not very good photos, but I think it turned out pretty well and was gifted to my mum who is using it as a candle holder and not a soap dish!
Have a great Handmade Monday everyone.
