I love doing glass basketweave pieces!! I really fell in love with this glass plate when I pulled it out of the kiln and saw how it turned out.
The strips were cut from Spectrum 96 Hi-Fire Black Iridescent Glass — I just love this glass! Anyway, I layered the strips to give the illusion of a basketweave and then I did a dimensional fuse — I wanted to keep some dimension to the strips. In another firing, I fused two pieces of clear glass together. When both parts were ready, I did another dimensional fuse. When that was done, I slumped it into a plate mold.
Now, I have a question for all of you reading this post. Does anyone have any idea what happened next to this glass piece?
I really want to get some of your ideas. How about we play a game? If you post a reply with a guess as to what happened to my glass plate and include your email address, I will send you a photo of what happened to my plate.
If you don’t make a guess, then you won’t know what happened to my plate!!
Go ahead…………leave a comment…………..it’s easy
