The demonstration for this weeks class was an ashtray. A heavy roccoco type twirly thing.
Andrew's had bubbles but the 'real thing' would have been highly coloured not clear glass with the extra addition of gold leaf as well. 'Gaudy' I think was the term Andrew used.
However the demonstration was used to show a more organic way of pushing the glass around.
it's out of the kiln now so i'll get a snap.
We (the student's) continued on with our tumblers and colour.
hhmm, I think I know why they used colour..something to look at apart from cigarette butts.
