Blue-Green Core Formed Vessel

blue green vesselI made this at a special workshop taught at the Mesa Arts Center by Laurie Nessel.  Now I’ve made vessels with both lampworking and borosilicate techniques, as well as in the hot shop.  In some ways, this is the easiest, but it is by no means the fastest.  Also, unlike with boro and hot shop, you can’t easily get perfectly translucent vessels on account of the roughness of the core.  You can, however, get details and bright colors.

    This is beginning to remind me of Chihuly’s work…
