This is a large psychedelic retro patterned handkerchief vase. It measures approximately 19 cms high and 23cm wide.
I made this using clear glass and fired the background colours of orange/red and yellow. The details are fired separately in black enamel.
The final stage is kiln firing the flat glass over a mould to achieve the draped effect.
This is a tricky piece to get right. The temperature of the final firing needs to be spot on or you risk melting the glass resulting in the glass cracking or flowing onto the kiln shelf.
