More recycled glass with emamel color

Window glass turns a fine ice-blue color after being fired in the kiln.

I love the ice-blue color, 
but adding a bit of enamel can bring a new dimension to my glass pieces.

I ordered a sample selection of enamels from Thompson Enamel 
and have loved experimenting with the opaque and transparent colors.

Pre-fired glass blanks in the kiln. 
The enamel colors don't really show themselves until after firing.

The bowl below was made from the bottom right blank.

I love the color.
