I agree working with two bowls is the way to go.
i would start making small ones first just to get it right
my guess on how it was made was they layed out the stones down between the two bowls and then pored the resin into the space between the bowls.
but they might have also started at the bottom layed the stones down pored the resin and moved up from there.
i have never used resin though so i am not so sure how it flows, but thouse would be my two suggestions

glass blowers did tradionaly die young, and this was mainly the case because there was lead in the glass, to make it melt easer, and there was lead in many of the colours as well. today there is very little lead used in the glass because of this. i know many old glass blowers, dieing young isnt realy a huge problem anymore.

a hard ware store will sell you plate glass, mind you it wont be coloured, but it would still be pretty. be sure to buy extras because you will most likely brake it. to add a more personal touch to the peice you can paint on one side of the glass, that always looks nice.
good luck!

55  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Portfolio Submission Question (Please help) on: August 11, 2006 03:20:41 PM
how many peices do they want you to submit? when i was applying to my college they wanted 15 peices. i did a mix of a few things, oil paintings, drawings, collage, and ceramics. they ranged from human form work to archetecture, to still lifes, to abstract sculptures. by doing this i showed them that i not only was good at what i wanted my major to be *ceramics* but i was also good at a few diffrent mediums. i would sugest having every thing you have made in the last year and a half photographed, and add in any thing from earlyer that is realy good. then i would go threw the photos, or slides depending on what the college wants, and see what ones came out the best. then from there pick your portfolio. applying to art school can be wicked confusing, if you have any other questions or need help with anything feel free to ask!
Best luck

Amazing! You should be a jewelry designer because I would definitely buy all of those! They look like things you would find in a store such as urban outfitters! I wish I knew how to make jewelry. Maybe ill have to learn...
58  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: pricing help-- vinyl deer cuff (xposted on etsy forums) on: June 22, 2006 04:20:29 PM
I think 15 would be a fine price
places that sell mass made cuffs seem to sell them at about 8 or 9
so to have something hand made i would deff spend 15
i love how cute the deer is
Good Luck with your Cuffs!

your pieces are beautiful!! i have always wanted to try the horse hair in my rakus. cest la vie... anyways im guessing that you want to put a portfolio together for going to college? my suggestion  is to have about half being a more "traditional" art form such as drawing or painting. this is what i was told at national portfolio day *witch is something you might want to check out* if you want to talk any more i am a ceramic major, and i recently went threw the portfolio process.
