View Full Version : My first Vessels!

I am proud of myself. These are the first vessels I have tried, so be nice.

I think they came out pretty good. The purple one has a messed up handle, but oh well. They were fun to do also. Both are in Bullseye glass.

Very good first vessels! I really must get my hands on some bullseye one day.

Now for the helpful hints:

Your vessel shape is very good. I have learned that if I use stacked dots for the handles, they stay more even. So dot up top, then on the body, then the other side two dots one up top and one on the body, and flatten slightly and then add another dot on each side and continue, remembering to flatten slightly between dots. Then when you think you've got enough heat one side of the arms and push them towards each other (on the same side this is). then heat the center, the larger areas of glass flow towars the smaller areas. And then shape as you wish with whatever round object you have, I use a 1/8th mandrel or my newest hollow chopsticks. (thanks fairy glass godmother :D )

Keep up the practice and they do get easier. ;)
