I just pulled out another 10″ high Glass Drop Ring Vase! It turned out great! I don’t have a picture of it yet. I am just so excited that it turned out so nicely. I fused five layers of glass, plus some scrap glass for the design. I had to fuse five layers of glass, because the glass drop ring is 10″ high. When the glass drops through the ring, it stretches quite a long ways and I didn’t want the neck of the vase to be too thin.
I need to fuse three layers of round glass to make a base for the glass vase. This will make the glass vase more substantial. I don’t want to make the base larger than the hole in the ring mold. Otherwise, I would have to break the mold to get the glass vase out of the ring mold. I suppose it would be a rather interesting glass vase if I made the base larger and just kept the ring mold with the glass vase 🙂
I will post a picture when I take one.
