TECHNIQUE: Created in multiple stages with hot and cold work, this piece begins by creating a blank. This involves blowing a small, thick bubble of glass, often around the size of a toy football, and overlaying it with layers of different colored hot glass. After the blank is cooled, patterns are drawn onto it and are masked off. Then, the pattens are carved into the blank by sandblasting through the layers of color. The upper color is carved away, exposing the color underneath, creating a relief design. The blank is reheated, attached to the blowpipe and coated with more layers of clear and then blown into its final enlarged size.
