Participating in Seth Apter's 'Buried Treasure"
I was surprised to learn I have been blogging 4 years!
3 years ago..I think... I was commissioned by "Laura Ingels Homestead" living museum located in De Smet South Dakota...I did three styles of boxes for them that year, this was my favorite though.
The "painting" is an elixir created from crushed glass, pigments and flux. Fired in the kiln, the "paint" becomes new glass...as the image fuses into the glass substrate...the boxes were constructed using bevels for the bottoms sides and an antique glass for the painted parts, lid and bottom. The solder lines were sculpted to finish the box decoratively.
Thank you for sharing this moment and helping me participate with Seth's collaboration.
