Fresh out of the kiln today is an experiment in pate de verre: a glass beetle with a dichroic green shell cast into a clear/white glass base. This was done using glass powder. When it's cleaned up, this will sparkle on top of a box.
Below: A new rosewood box with the cast glass rhubarb face as a top. The base is mirrored. And also new today, a green glass snake which will be set into a wooden base as a top for our snake box, pictured with it.
We're off to Dallas for the Art in the Park fair at Klyde Warren Park this Saturday, Oct 5. See you there!
