Making Swirly Fused Glass Pieces - Day 4

This morning should be the day that my swirly fused glass pieces are complete. I got up early so I had time to admire them before I start my paying job.

Sigh - mixed results. It turns out that the transparent green that I used, despite supposedly having the same melting properties, acted a bit differently. Instead of getting all lovely perfectly smooth pieces, many of the green portions are spiky. I'll have to spend several hours grinding each piece separately by hand before I can use them. But at least with some more work, I'll be able to fix them and incorporate them into my finished pieces.

The final firing results.

Details of the final firing - the transparent greens are often spiky, but my red ones look perfect.
