I slumped two glass spoon rests: one of them is a single layer of green and the other one is a really cool blue iridized glass with yellow stringers scattered about it. The Glass stand is made by fusing three pieces of 1/2″ glass into a triangle. I have to make sure it will fit the mold by grinding down the corners and then I slump it. Today I slumped a red glass stand. These are new projects for me. They are pretty cool, because it adds a nice touch to a bowl or plate or whatever you want to put on it.
The Daisy Suncatcher turned out better than I had hoped. The blue petals have an iridized surface and each one seems to have a different color! I put the hangar on it with some beads for an accent. I don’t know if I want to sell it at the Craft Fair, because I love it so much!
The two glass spoon rests came out very nice, too. However, I slumped a small fluted bowl with all the others and each inner curve had a sharp point. I ground those down and now I have to slump it again to make the edges all nice and shiny. The glass I used was swirls of various shades of purple. However, after the slumping, some areas turned a light brown. It is quite a surprise and it is a neat effect.
