New Boxes are in!

As promised here are the boxes that were finished, just in time for the Columbia Gorge Art Festival. I had to re-make the lids – the first time through I overfired them, making the embellishments too flat.  The frog lid was especially sad as a flattened embellishment.

When I teach at D&L Art Glass in Denver this July, I’ll be leading students through the process of making these wonderful boxes using powdered glass for color.  New ideas abound as I fill the Lidded Box Molds again, making the next round of boxes.

I’ll show the next round soon, but must first spend some time filling up my on-line shop and firing more glass for the upcoming Art in the Garden show!

  1. Whooo, whooo, I’m going to be one of those lucky students in Denver to learn this!!!

    The boxes look great. I’ve seen some on the manufacturer’s site with branches, leaves and flowers too. Can’t wait to learn more.

    Hope things are going great on 1000Markets for you too.
