Many Threads Blown Glass Globe

70.00

Texture + color + glass. It's a combination I can't resist. Feel the same way? Don't worry, it's okay to touch ALL the colors.

For this piece, I gathered clear glass from the 2000 degree furnace, added powdered glass in white, melted it in, gathered clear glass again and then blew it into shape.  Before transferring the piece to a punty, I circled the piece with thin wraps of blue, golden orange and violet--wrapping each here and there as yarn might wind on its way to becoming a ball.

Measures approximately: 5 inches at widest and 3.5 inches high. The opening is about 1.5 to 1.75 inches across.  You can feel the wraps on the outside--adding LOTS of extra texture and character.

This piece is part of a series I'm exploring with glass "threads." When I'm not in the glass studio, you might just find me crocheting--on the metro, at a craft show or on a quiet night. A pile of yarn was on the table next to some of my glass--and the two looked quite nice together. So I set out to combine the two by recreating my own threads in glass.
