A little experimenting

Just a little experimenting. These are just shapes worked on the end of old, bent mandrels. Not sure what to do with them - plant them in the garden maybe.

This is the Effetre Ebony and Ivory - freaking awesome glass. I bought a couple of pounds - but I don't think it will be enough. I'm afraid that subsequent batches will not be the same.

I have to say, it is as shocky as hell though - loaded with air bubbles that keep shooting the end off. I have a sizable pile of chunks left over now.  But worth it.

The faces are just regular ivory - made with that Burgard face mold. Gather of glass, droop into the mold. Then drape the "hair" around the face. 
 More playing.
