Back to Boxes
May 6, 2009
My shipment of new box molds should be arriving any day now. I have the kidney shape that Craig at Colour de Verre (http://www.colourdeverre.com/index.php?cat=4) gave me and I’ve made a couple of them. The box pictured here is a pink so dark that it almost appears black. The lid embellishment is CdV’s Lotus Flower mold. I have a new box in the kiln using clear frit with purple powder which will give it a ‘veined’ appearance & can’t wait to see how it turns out.
I LOVE these lidded glass boxes! I’ve tried making various glass boxes in my kiln to no avail for years, so am excited and happy to find a reusable casting mold that works. The other shapes are round, elliptical, and rectangle. The lids can be embellished with a cast accent, using another CdV mold or my own original mold, then tack fusing it to the lid.
Don’t forget the auction in my previous post! You have until this Friday, May 8th at midnight to bid on the puzzle vase. I’m so thrilled with the response at this point that I’m throwing in an extra surprise for the lucky high bidding winner as a thank you!
