Today we got to play with pieces of glass – layering them up to create some interesting patterns and designs.
I have done this for quite a few years now in my own studio, but it was nice to just ‘play’ and see what happened rather than creating something purposeful to perhaps sell or gift.
I just layered up some pieces that I had found left over from someone else’s waterjet cutting project, I thought they formed interesting shapes and was interested to see what would happen when they were layered on top of each other.
It was fired at around 780 degrees – normally at home, I would have gone a little higher to create a smoother surface. But the texture was quite nice.
