Hand-Painted Rectangular Bowl in Hi-Fire Spectrum Glass
Spectrum hi-fire glass produces beautiful slumped pieces. I like to use it with hand-painted pieces that illuminate the art as if it were backlit with a bright floodlight. You have to fuse it very slowly with a bubble squeeze schedule or else it will bubble up. I also do the hand-paintings separately and then fuse then to the larger piece in two fusings. This also minimizes bubble entrapment.
