Iron Fuser 2017

      Comments Off on Iron Fuser 2017

The glass fusing shop in North Austin, Helios, ran their Iron Fuser contest again this year. This year’s theme was the Tropics. I am delighted that I won a category in the contest, for my bowl, “Flower of India”!

It’s fun to do this contest; a good exercise in making something complex within a set of parameters – in this case, they provide a pack of glass which you have to use all of. The orange, green and sparkly frit in this piece was part of the pack, as was the sea blue, which started life as clear Tekta. You may add anything you want, and make anything you want. The standard of entries was very high, and varied in their compositions. You can see the all the entries at the Iron Fuser website.

Thank you to Karen Tarlow for the pictures of my entry and the award.

New, bigger, bowls are coming.

I bought a new mould! It is 11.5″ in diameter, which allows me to make bigger bowls for the first time. Here’s a Sand Dollar bowl in semi-transparent shades of green. The first of many!

New crackle bowls

Fresh out of the kiln, three new brightly coloured crackle bowls, with my custom screen printed designs on. These have a matte finish on the back and are semi transparent, so the light shines through these.


Get them quick before Sunshine Cat does!
