Blood From a Stone by c-urchin Blood From a Stone by c-urchin
I've been experimenting with the glass beads at different temperatures....

This one has been fired at stoneware temp with clear glass and white glaze, the beads have been added in a further low fire lustre temperature. The beads have not fully melted, but have formed perfect spheres and fused to the glass beneath :D

I love this! Not only is is beautiful with the opium pod like shape and natural tones,but the title that clinches it. I only wish the red gems were a bit darker closer to garnet. Just cause thats my favorite hue of red.

That's a great effect. Can you glaze and then also fuse the beads?

I'm not sure...i haven't tried it yet :) I would imagine that it would work with some of the thicker, glassier glazes, but not with the drier matt glazes, but it is something I should try :) Thanks :D
