Phoenix Mix Ornament.

1.25.2010

An orange, red and yellow ornament made of blown glass I made this ornament at a "Blow Your Own" event at Art By Fire. This particular mix of frit makes me think of phoenix; the mythical firebird.

I was pleased with how this ornament came out. I like being able to see just a bit of clear in-between the opaque bits of frit. You can get a sense of the motions which created this ornament by the shaping of the colored bits: the bottom of the ornament is blown out while the top is squeezed in.

As always, thanks to the husband for the lovely photo.
