I have seen these strip bowls and plates and thought I would give it a try. - It has a slight curve on the edge.  measures 10x6 inches.  Maybe one with multi colors would suite me better.  Green is fun, but the more color the better.

I think that is very fun looking - from the initial picture, it looked like green slime.  I like that!

Green is my favorite color, and this instantly got my attention. How would it work as a wall hanging? Very cool shapes within the form. Smiley

HSG!  You crack me up!  As luck would have it, I hung it on the wall yesterday in the living room.  It is kind of groovy looking!

This is a fun idea and I like the thought of using it as a wall-hanging!

Might I suggest ramping up the heat a little bit more next time? That or fusing first, than slumping in a second cycle. I think if the strips were more consistently even, then that curve in the glass would stand out beautifully!

Glassables,
It was fired twice. once to 1450 to fuse. Then again at 1250 to slump in the mold.
