platter making

We had a great time at Friday’s glassblowing demo at DC GlassWorksLeo and I each made pieces similar to what you’ll find in the 32nd Annual Sculpture Exhibit at Montpelier Arts Center. I started by shaping two colors (black and blue) into one.Beth making double color drop

Then I dropped my duo onto a clear bubble of glass–working the color down to encase the clear.Beth color drop

Then I gathered clear, shaped and gave the bubble a bit of air before gathering and shaping again.Beth shaping glass

Then it was time for more air.Beth blowing glass

Then the final spin and an evening in the annealer. Inspiration Iceland platter by Wunder AroundThe final result is always a bit of mystery until things have cooled, but I loved how the colors blended on this one! A nice addition to my Inspiration Iceland series.
