Coming back from the holidays was a shock. I came back to find that the cement had cracked (due to contracting) and it had al so pulled the glass with it.
I liked how the last glass tiles came out. I do think they are really thick, but I like the fact they are quite rounded and I think might even work well as a surface because they feel smooth on the top. They also have a very glossy look.
I am trying to get the glass thin, so that it looks translucent rather than milky. I believe it might have something to do with the type of glass it was. For example, the first lot of Fentimans clear glass came out quite clear, compared to the coca cola one. So I am going to try using it again.
Because of the glass being recycled, I wanted to see what would happen is I were to put it back in the kiln. My idea was to cut it into smaller pieces and place it on the mould I had been using. I was hoping that the temperature I had been using for the other samples was going to help fuse the pieces together.
I managed to take the glass out this morning (it was still hot on Friday afternoon). Results are not the best, the glass did not really fused, but I do like the texture it came our with.
I think these pieces could work for jewellery pieces.
