After nearly 2 months of work, I have finally finished the antique washstand. I completed the fused bowl first and then worked the glass and ceramic design around the basin theme. It is all that I first imagined when I saw it tucked away in the dusty corner of the antique store. It does amaze me sometime how our mind's eye can see what can become with a little creativity, hard work and love.

My organic slump mold from Creative Paradise finally arrived and the results are just--WOW! I knew I had to have it when I saw it in Vegas. I used bejeweled frit mix, vitigraph stringers, millefiori and iridized frit for the flowers. This is a donated piece for the local CEC chapter for their spring fundraiser.

This week I completed a 4 piece place setting of Japanese Sushi dinner plates and rice bowls with matching chopsticks. Each plate is banded in differing warm colors and all included a cyan/red dichroic swirl. These were done using Sys96 glass and Slumpy's Jumping Jill splash molds.
