How the trans pride pendants are made
Welcome to the new site! I'm going to use the shop blog to go behind the scenes in my studio and show you how the glass pieces are made. Let's get started!
I start with 3 stacks of 4"x1" glass, each one switching between the 3 trans pride colors so that they will flow out and melt into stripes.
It's then fired and turned into a 6" square slab.
After that I cut it into strips...
And then they're cut into small rectangles. (They're pictured here wet; I have to wash the dust off after they're done. Trust me, it's prettier than immediately post-sawing.)
I then take the pieces and refire them.
This allows them to puddle out, distorting a bit as they go.
After that, I attach bails to them and they're ready to go out to customers!
