I was so excited when I pulled these from the kiln a little bit ago I had to run and share them. I had one of the weekends where I was just "off" while I was working but today's small load totally made up for it.
Sorry for being a hog but it has to be done every once and a while...

Rebecca the bicones are stunning and the set is oh so lickable!

More Fairy Baubles

my jaw just dropped when i saw that first bead! WOW!

Hi Beaders,

Briatha - the part I like about the beads (besides the sparkle) is the pattern and variation within your surface design. Spots, lines, squiggles... nice.

Here is a vessel that I am proud of - part blown, part sculpted on a hollow mandrel. It is wrapped with a lot of stringer!


03-23-2004, 02:29 AM
Lots of yummy goddies so early in the morning. It makes me want to peek in the kiln a bit early. :eek: I know, I know. It will ruin everything. So, I'm going to bed instead.
Rebecca, I want that first bicone in your post. When will you list it in your store? :evil:


03-23-2004, 03:00 AM
Rebecca - You always have such beauties to share with us. Absolutely stunning focal and set!

Faith - Your Fairy Baubles make me wish I was a Fairy too :)

Karen - that vessel looks absolutely delicious! The fuming work is beautiful! Awesome job there! The only thing I'd be a little bit leary about would be those handles, they look a bit thin to me. Hope you don't mind my saying. Wouldn't want them breaking off that beauty of a vessel, and that stopper great form!

Hugs from Longing to make beads Holland,

Hi Sarah - If you use my art for industrial entertainment, such as jumping on it or throwing it across the room, it might break. However, applications given by the normal person do not allow for breakage.

Rebecca, Briatha, Karen: GORGEOUS!!!!!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

03-23-2004, 06:00 AM

Wow - great start to my day! Rebecca, I can see why you were excited to post - love that bicone :).

03-23-2004, 07:25 AM
I haven't gotten much torch time lately since sports have started for the spring and the horses need attention, but these are some I managed to play long enough to get. Hopefully things will slow down soon.

03-23-2004, 09:43 AM

03-23-2004, 09:44 AM

I've been avoiding the S&T for a while in an effort to focus myself and not get distracted by what everyone else is doing. But I'm glad I finally peeked in here today to see such lovely offerings!
Karen, that vessel sent me into a swoon! :eek:
