Paperweight by Alysa
Tom Stopped by Foci Glass today (Thursday) to see what might be happening. Michael had been sick for a week so the paperweights needed grinding and Michael showed Tom how this works. Anyway…here are the final results. Photographng glass never shows all the intricacies, but here we go.
Katy does the blues
Betsy used every color Michael had.
Ann did the swirl, and
Tom, as usual, was highly restrained and subtle.
All in all we were pretty happy. An friend of Michael’s, Nathan, was there working on trying to combine Raku pottery with molten glass. Could be interesting, but the different shrinkage rates between the glass and clay were causing crackling and crazing.
