I have been wanting to incorporate dichroic glass into my glass bowls, glass plates and glass vases. Here is my first attempt. First, I cut and ground two layers of Bullseye 90 clear glass. Second, I had the pleasure of picking different colors of dichroic glass rectangles. Third, I needed to design a pattern to place the dichroic rectangles. Fourth, I fused all the glass to a full fuse. Fifth, I slumped the square into a round bowl mold to give it some dimension.
I think it came out really great!!
The hardest part was trying to get a picture of it. I tried several different background colors and different lighting and after several attempts at it, I finally got this picture. It certainly doesn’t show what the dichroic glass actually looks like in person, but this picture is the best that I have taken of it so far.
I noticed that nobody has commented about my previous blog entry. I am looking for anyone’s thoughts about what happened to my glass basketweave plate. Doesn’t anyone have a guess? Don’t be shy!!
