I’m back after a summer heat induced hiatus, with some new, white, frit vein bowls. I like the way these have turned out; you can really see the color veins in these. There’s a couple of new transparent ones too since folks seem to like those.
I also made some worry stones; shiny glass rocks! A customer asked if I had any; well, I do now. Keep one in your pocket and let the colorful round pebbles take your cares away.
It’s hot and hotter here in Texas, which means I’m running the kiln a little less frequently, but here is the latest batch of goodies to emerge. More frit vein bowls! The small square blue one is in a new mold, too. Now I can make small square dishes. These are great for keys, or as large coasters, or as base plates for pillar candles.

Here’s a brace of new bowls. Some Indian-style ones in bright colors, two Wrought Iron designs in more subtle tones, and a pair of Frit Vein styles. You can catch these at the upcoming Buda Market In The Park, on July 1st.
There are all around 5″ in diameter.
The square one is 8″, and the round one is about 5.5″.
I tried a new technique, and I’m really liking how these came out. These are made from pieces of clear glass with colored frit (tiny bits of glass) in the gaps between. I then added more color to brighten them some more. They’re nicely heavyweight and slightly rustic feeling, with a load of depth in the glass. You really need to handle these and see how the different veins move in front of each other.
