Not complete? Can you add more glass, and refire? I like where you're headed with this guy.

he hasnt been fired yet, so i can still play with the design - once fired all the hard sharp edges will round out for a nicer look. i can only fire a piece about 3-4 times before the glass becomes dulled in places

John, I cn tell how you're having a blast with your fused glass creations. You've just got it dialed in & having fun with it now. It's pretty fascinating to me. Put it all together, slide it in the kiln & see what comes out. I've got some friends in Chandler. Next time out I'd like to look you up. Keep it up, your work is so cool!

Aaron

these are the new prototypes for my newest tiki pendant line. for my other tikis i use regualr colors, these feature the dichroic glass which appears metallic and changes colors. you cant tell from the pic but the layer of clear glass encapsulates the colored glass and has a magnifying effect similar to a drop of water

Hey john.... I agree, this is cool stuff! I like the prototypes too. Those would make great tie pins.

John you ae treading down some new paths here. totally cool stuff. Your craftmanship with glass (and small pieces of glass) is unbelievable.

Those last magnified tikis are by far my favorites - sams right they'd make cool tie tacks, or cuff links or earings...or...whatever. totally cool. Keep posting your stuff...I'm diggin it!

Hey John, I think you are on to something with the swizzle sticks. If you make a set with that dichroic glass I'm interested.
