these are the last 2 commissions that were to be done for Christmas! the 2 small bevel panels were shipped out today...and will arrive Thursday...close!
then the grandma platters...the first set we chose glass that plainly wanted to misbehave...which had me nervous over the whole project..what if the next glass does this too..(it can happen)
so client came and reselected a different sheet for these granny and Nana platters
the children's hands were traced and then i made a stencil of their hands
first i used frits and powders but the purple and pink colors that were to represent the girls were to close to the base composition of the substrate glass
so i ended up having to use enamels..which still set the tone of the color..even tho the bottom plate looks as if both of the pairs of hands are purple
the bigger hands are pink..just where i took the picture absorbed the true colors
these are lead free enamels
the irregular edge lends to a unique arty appeal that says i ordered this just for you
i think you are special!
done in time for Christmas gifting...
how is that list doing there for you??
ho ho ho...
