Went a Bit Barmy with Blue

I had a little time Friday afternoon to get on the torch. I found myself reaching for rods of white and cobalt blue and made this series - Porcelain...

This monster, took 3 rods of glass and measures 35mm

And for a choice of focals, there is also this "crunched" oblong

I also got this set made - a 30mm "marble" focal with 3 matching spacer beads which I've named Candied Jewels. I love the dark amethyst of this set!

And this, Galakto - another large "marble" focal

And I made an invert of the porcelain beads. Instead of white, I used ivory coloured glass, which has given a daintier swirl. This is Midnight Waltz

And lastly, Blue Lace... Told you I had a thing about blue on this last session!!

The girls are on 2 weeks leave from school, so no more torch time now until the end of the month... Which is probably just as well as the studio is FREEZING! See you in March!
