Something old, something new....

Well, people who know me from Frit Happens might have seen some of my stuff, but I am noticing visitors from other places now (I am loving that Live Feed!).

So, over the next few days I will publish a few photographs of some of the work I have done in the past - to some, it will be "old", but some visitors to the blog (or my website) they will be new pieces.

This was my first pair of coasters that I made a few weeks ago - not sure the photo shows their true beauty, they are irridescent and reflect beautiful colours. I just love Bullseye glass!

This plate took some doing, and kinda developed as it went along - I had a problem with the underside not coming out totally clear, so I ended up sandblasting the whole of the reverse - but I love the effect. The plate is really shiny on the surface, and frosted underneath, but because of the thickness of the glass, the pattern on the top looks like its floating - now I know how to get this effect, I can try that again!

I love the plate Dawn - it looks like floating petals, very effective!

Thanks Maz, I was really pleased with the end result, even if it wasn't planned like that initially!
