Glass Experiments

Dish1 Dish2 Dish3 HouseDish1 HouseDish2I’ve been playing with the terrazzo glass sampler I purchased a few weeks back.  I made a few test vehicles (ancient engineering term) of pottery to try them out with.  I learned that some glass chips hold their color better than others at the temperature we fire at.  The little square dishes are ring holders.  I didn’t use nearly enough glass in them but can refire with a little more.  It seems the darker colors show the raised designs the best.  The birdbath dish is just something silly I made.  What I learned is this one also needs more glass (which I can fix with a refire) and since it’s a pinch pot, the surface is uneven.  I’ll try adding glass to a wheel thrown pot soon.  The last little dish was slab built and is my favorite.  It’s like a tiny town at the side of a lake.  Fun stuff!
