Crazy Curve dish

I bought a new glass slumping mould a couple of months ago and finally had the opportunity to use it. The mould is the largest that will fit into my kiln so this is one of the largest piece I can make.

The dish is made with a clear glass base, one layer of glass powder in three colours covered with a random selection of blue frit (that what small pieces of glass are called – think grit), some clear glass and a surprise scattering of plum in a random pattern. (I thought I had chosen green lumps but it turned out to be plum instead!).

The glass was fused flat first which is the usual process. I then put the mould in the kiln and fired the glass again. I was totally thrilled with the result. I hope you agree. I will be taking it to Church Lane Gallery in Banbury because I’m very proud of it. I plan to make one in blues so we’ll see how that comes out. Firing glass is sometimes gives quite a surprising result. That’s what makes it fun.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
