I am going to quickly get addicted to this...the joy of painting in glass. I love it!. I will need to refine my firing sequence and add longer holds at 1000 and 1250 degrees for more effective bubble squeezes and then I will have it down. I think I have found my new passion. Here's to the start of something grand!

I love Uroboros glass. It has to be my favorite for stained glass and fusing. Of all the glass I have worked with, the fractured streamers are the most beautiful, expensive and difficult to handle. Once you get it to behave, it can produce the most amazing pieces. This granny fluted bowl is no exception.

I admit that I have gone iridized crazy! This is a double iridized black and clear 9" sushi plate embellished with two ruby red poppies and leaves. It takes 18+ hours in the kiln to make it work but the slump and the tack fuse are done simultaneously. Works for me!
