These are so much fun to make! I’m still refining and experimenting with the shapes and colours (from left to right): All are 1.75″-2.5″
Metallic Moss:This goddess was supposed to be a deep blue colour but i somehow managed to reduce this furnace glass to a weird (but way cool!) metallic green colour. i absolutely did not expect this and hope i can recreate this technique, it’s fantastic!
Purple Rose: I love this furnace glass – it gives a great mottled purple ranging from very light to deep with minimal effort. I even reduced her a bit for some dark interest.
Sandy Gold: I love, love the depth of colour in this one and the odd little streak that developed across her belly – makes her look like she’s been carved from stone. I ran out fuel making her, so popped her in the kiln to keep warm and swapped tanks. But then when i took her out to finish the sculpting i decided i liked her very raw, slightly unformed finish and left her just as she was…
More Grey Goddesses:
i made the one on the left in May (or was it June?) and then tried to replicate the effect using the same glass.
This is a white furnace glass that when reduced develops this awesome streaky grey finish that is also slightly irridescent. I still haven’t figured out how i created the metallic effect on the first one but i did manage to get two other cool looks.
Hard to beleive these are all made pretty much the same way from the exact same glass!
Question i’ve been recently asked: So what does one do with these goddesses?
Well…they can be framed (i think they’d look lovely in a trio of shadow box frames) or for a more personal connection they can be worn as a pendant. Here’s an example:
