When I made the red and black glass lace, in the center of this glass bowl, I had no idea what I was going to do with it. I was just playing around with using two colors in my glass lace. To make this glass lace, I poured some clear glass frit medium size on the kiln shelf. Using my powder sifter, I sprinkled red glass powder on parts of the clear glass frit and black glass powder on some other places.
I really liked the results, but still didn’t know what I was going to do with it. After some contemplating, I decided to fuse it to some white glass, which I did. However, there was something missing, so I added more red and black powder and a few pieces of medium-sized red glass frit around the edges to give the white glass some interest. I full fused the glass lace and the glass frit powder to the white as well as a layer of clear underneath the white. I slumped the fused glass into a 9″ Ball Mold. I am very happy with how it all came together!!
