Seahorses and some new boro pendants

Well….another long pause between posts…..work, down time, this and that…..and now….some new work from me…..
First of all, I have been having fun with seahorses…..they are so fun to make, lots of heat control, making sure I am pulling the glass without dropping it, keeping the curves forming as I stretch the glass…….and remembering to breathe between it all…..
So, here you are, my first few seahorses in boro. They are fantasy, fun creatures inspired by the beautiful seahorses and sea dragons under water but I am not even trying to replicate the detail of the real creatures, this is an interpretation in glass with a lot of creative license….

I hope you like them, I ran out of glass after the last one so I have to wait a little while for my new glass to come and I can start playing again.

Here are some implosions in boro also from last weekend’s torch sessions.

It’s a pity that the weekends are so short….I would love some more play time to improve my fantasy creatures.
Catch you later…….

Vessels available online

I have listed a few vessels in my online store for now and I have just received some more luscious colours of frit to play with so there will be more to come.

Here’s a quick peak at the collection available.

Boro vessels/suncatchers

 

They have lots of sparkle in them and look really gorgeous when they catch a bit of light.

Put them by a sunny window and place a few drops of your favourite essential oils if you like. The warmth from the sun will release the volatile oils into the room and you won’t have to worry about a tea-light candle burning on an empty oil pot or leaving the electric oil burner on and forgetting about it.
