the final 5 layer piece. can't get the camera to focus on it properly right now. i need a new cam, o great universe...
 all my tumblers that have mananged to get into the anealer, and out in one piece. left to right.: my very 1st tumbler, my 2nd and third effort. since this time nothing has survived... it's very frustrating 
  2 x 2 colour templated images. 2 - 3 firings per piece. they turned out ok for proof of concept.
 back into the kiln went this A4 piece. should be interesting to see it after firing. i carefully brushed every little speck away from the edges and made sure to have a hard edge.. sigh. i had patience and refinement. 
  finally a bullseye kit open, paper stencil teplates, and the glass plate. all the tools i could ever want.. heh heh heh.

Congrats on the tumblers and too bad about the subsequent ones not surviving. I'm enjoying the progress of those glass pieces, though I don't really understand the process (I have no clue about glass ;) They look great though.

ta!

basically you sprinkle coloured glass powder onto glass sheeting, then fire it, till the powder melts in (750 degrees C)

i use stencils that i would otherwise be spraying on the streets. it's edgy and has a street grit to it ;)

Love the stencilled pieces! I found your journal via errantdreamer I'm into glass art too- do you mind if I friend you?
