I really like the concept of creating a glass quilt.
The finished product not only looks cool w/ the sun shining through it, it also is very tactile and I find myself drawn to touching it often.
I want to repeat this project w/ a bit more color and texture planning.
I placed a new glass and tools order last night.
It should get here in the next few days.
I can't wait.
Spring, is not here.
It was cold and cloudy on this Monday.
A very difficult day to stay optimistic and moving in a positive direction.
I really want to work outside and plant some things in the garden.
Even my spring bulbs are not blooming yet.
Working with glass helps.
A project in the works -
My goal is to etch John Lennon's 'Imagine' lyrics into a glass panel.
I will then rub black glass powder suspended in oil into the etched letters -
removing any extra black glass.
After firing, the words should stand out
and the panel should be able to be displayed on a wall or in a window.
I hope my plan works.
I started etching the lyrics and then I thought. . .
I better move a bit slower.
I created a one word test.
'Imagine' on a scrap of glass is in the kiln tonight.
Determining if this is going to work prior to putting in many etching hours.
This is the choice I made for tonight.
My 'Imagine' test fit in the kiln along side my first fuse of a white bowl with red dots.
