Kiln formed glass with Kirstie Rea - 2

I got up early this morning to bake cup cakes, my turn for the class sweet treat (Kirstie brought banana cake last week).This week was about transforming our designs through different mediums of bullseye flat glass, powder and stringer.
Using combinations of clear and white glass and black powder and rod we experimented with transferring and transforming our images and words to 3 more surfaces. The powder was unusual but exciting to use as you can push, fluff, scrape, pull and scatter in application. The rod was quite minimal and angular (to be expected) but a telling exercise of reduction. Below are pictures of our work pre fusing.
