First piece of the New Year!  (Well, my first piece anyways - my boys are home from college on winter break and both have been busy honing their new glass skills and hogging up kiln time.)  This one is an Ikebana vase made from frits with mild reactive properties.

Very, very nice! How did you get the hole in the middle? Drill?

Yep - 1 3/4" core bit.  I've found that to be the easiest method.  I simply drill them out and then put the piece back in for a contour fuse.  Often the cored piece can be used for a nice pendant.

Here's a pic of the underside.  It's not near as pretty as the top.  I use different pin frogs depending on the size of the disk, so I attached a pic of those as well.
