Flowers and Hearts!!
I was working on so much green with the Pitcher plants that I decided to go do something with color afterwards, just to clean things out. I never use my Bullseye but decided to try once again(each time I try, I end up being frustrated because it has very different qualities from the glass I am used to). This time I thought I would try flowers. At first, the flowers were very simple 5 petal dot flowers on a central spacer. Then, as I started to do more, I tried different shapes and sizes...I was having fun!
And when I pulled them out of the kiln, I fell in love--this was fun and the colors were pretty! Finally I am able to understand Bullseye and use it in a way that showcases their characteristics, not fight with it.
I am still in my Bullseye craze--there is so much to learn and experiment with. I love it and I never thought I would hear myself say that. Another COE--oh boy.....
oh...and just to show that I still love boro, the big daffodil is boro... ;-D
