The unworked rod appears as a very handsome golden, dark wheat colour - perhaps a little translucent looking - but we are used to glass that looks translucent but works up opaque.
While hot and working - the glass has an "opaly" quality - a milky translucence. It also appears to devitrify if cooled and gently reheated - causing me to wonder if this was a blend, like Calico - but the ends of the rod don't show that it is made of layers.
These two beads are self-coloured - and quite a handsome colour - amber - with a blush of pink in it - like a berry-cider blend. I chased away most of the devit with reheating to glowing and only a hint of it remains - not visible in this photo. It is, in fact, translucent. Cool.
And these two beads have been reduced - making them a dark bronze - with a metallic lustre.
So - what I tried looks to be a very intriguing glass - but with a caveat such as listed above, and a small sales limit - good luck finding out what this glass is really like, or duplicating results!
