Inkblot

-
-
The March 13th Inspire Me Thursday Challenge reminded me of a couple of pieces I made in 2007 using pieces of a black powder wafer. Although officially untitled I had referred to the piece on the bottom right as inkblot in my personal notes. So, this week I pulled out some glass powders and set to work making a few more of these "inkblots". The question being what will I do with them now. They may end up in pieces I complete months down the road.

These are very beautiful. It's fascinating to see the lovely things you do with glass and color. How big (or small) are these? How would you incorporate them into other work?

To answer Carla's questions, the powder wafers which in this case resemble inkblots can be made any size up to the size of one's kiln shelf. Consider however they are very delicate (only about 1 millimeter thick) and the greater they’re diameter the more likely they are to break. The ones I have been making this week are about 5 inches square. I will use them as design elements by full fusing them onto more substantial pieces(6millimeters thick) to create bowls or plates.

Really beautiful work! Glass is such a great medium. I just started to get my hands into stained glass art.
