As a way of relaxing I make things so as to differentiate my home life from my computing work life. Current involvements are Jewellery and Glass fusing although in the past and still occasionally I draw, paint, rubber stamp, paint silk etc.
My latest glass fusing has been to try making bowls and using dichroic glass and dichroic paper as highlights. Using dichroic paper is very interesting but mostly from the way it inherits its effects from the base layer of glass. Dichroic glass on the other hand can produce major bubbles during the full fuse phase!
This is a bowl that I made for a friend. It uses dichroic paper and dichroic glass embedded between two layers of glass. The bottom layer is two types of iridised bullseye glass.
