Platter, Platter, on the wall .......

We are in platter mode for a few sessions again. We have sold so many platters (rondels) that the walls are looking empty. I haven't been taking pictures of the platters since I had previously taken so many and we had moved on to try the mastery of other things, but these three came out so vivid and wonderful I wanted to photograph them for posterity.

Something New

Here is a new cane vase with a window. It is about 16" tall by about 6" wide at the widest part. Thanks to Andy and Roy for the help with the Sandblasting!!

Pink & White Lace Vase

Heres the white cane lace vase that was pictured earlier with the pink (which is really stiff white with Amethyst Blue overlay on the stiff white) and made to cane.

Micah's Platter and Vase

Here's a new vase sculpture and a twisted black/white cane platter that Micah did. He's ahead of me when I was only blowing as long as he has been.

Another Cane Lace Vase

Here we are doing our 2nd cane lace vase. This time we cased the white with amethyst blue. Once it cools you can see the amethyst blue better. A photo of the completed vase will come in a day or two. This time when making the cane, we did not gather clear over the spiraled color. Hence not clear gaps between the canes in the vase. I think I like the clear gaps better.
