Here is a slightly different type of glass weave:







Enjoy!

I usually work with Bullseye COE 90 glass, but this is Uroboros's lovely, sparkly, crystal clear, machine rolled glass. It cuts like a dream and is completely compatible with Bullseye.

It might be possible to use float glass to accomplish this, but it would have a blueish, greenish tinge and you'd have to guess at the annealing temperature. Best to stick with Bullseye and Uroboros!

Lovely work - I especially like the gentle slump you've used with this piece and I have a soft spot for work in colorless glass.  Is this BE Tekta or float glass?  I've been a bit reluctant to work with recycled float....

That's so pretty!!  I don't do any glass work, but I love looking at what everyone else is doing.

I've not seen anything like this! (Mind you, I'm no glass aficionado.) It looks like slightly melted icicles to me... which may be why I want to lick it... wait, that's weird.  It looks beautiful.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I haven't yet worked with Uro - strictly BECOE90 up till now.  I do love some of the colors they have available and may have to branch out a bit.  Good to hear a positive review on the compatibility. 

Any chance you're heading to the Glass Expo in April?
