Our gorgeous new box- kiln-cast glass helical female figures in 2 kinds of shift-tint glass, the picture to the right shows them in indoor light. The colors flicker back and forth depending on how much of each light touches them. They are fixed in black epoxy in a wenge frame on top of a curly walnut box carved with curves on the lid and bottom, with wenge legs.
Below is also our newest cast glass face in negative space. It's cast in clear glass with several colors of dichroic extract cast with the glass, giving it surprising shifting shimmer. And also below, our cast glass creepy faces box with handcarved walnut legs.
And finally, our glass mermaid box. It's a WOW. The whole box, inside and out, was covered in shiny black epoxy, so it looks as if she's rising out of black water, and her reflection in the black water is gorgeous. It's lined with blue suede. This took MANY days, because each of the 4 sides of the box (inside and out, had to be coated and left to dry for 24 hours, one side at a time. But it was worth it.
Below, an orange cast glass cat crouches next to a little vintage brass birdcage with a green-painted brass bird in it. They are attached to a curly walnut top, on a curly walnut box. And finally, a custom order- a sandblasted abstract glass horse on a box of holly and wenge with a woodburned initial "J." It has a red suede lining on the inside base.
Our finished sea monster box: swirly cocobolo with green cast glass head, body, and tail. It's lined with green suede, and weighs about 10 pounds! The wood is just gorgeous. And another new finished cast glass box: a glass hand cast into the glass top, polished sides, and a delicate lacewood and walnut base. The glass changes color depending on the light: inside it's blue, outside it's purple. It's really pretty awesome, and it's one of our less expensive cast glass pieces!
And some pieces in the works: our first experiment in cast black glass, which turns out to be a booger to polish: a black glass box sandblasted with a swirly design. We're thinking white holly wood for a top and base. And next to it, our newest box in the works: an orange cast glass cat crouching by a vintage brass birdcage (we painted the little bird green) on a beautiful walnut top. It will get a walnut box under it. Once these are finished, they'll be for sale!
