I've been trying some sculptural techniques. I'll post a few new things over the course of the next day or so, as I get pics taken.

For starters, here's a cherry I made last night. There's nothing to give it scale, but it's about the size of the real thing, give or take:

Thanks guys. I was screwing around and I tried to make a little coconut thing... It shattered so I made it a coconut wedge:



In honor of the upcoming Valentine's day holiday, I've been making some pendants. These are the very first ones I've made, with the red one and the last one being the most recent. As you can see I'm still working on getting the shape right, but it's getting closer.







Some leaves I made for practice. I don't know if you can see but they're much more detailed than the leaf on the cherry.

Blingetty Blang:





Just a proof of concept. It's do-able on my setup but more work than it's worth. I need a wider flame so that I can keep more glass hot. I just flat don't have enough flame to work at more than a snail's pace and if I'm not careful to keep the whole thing hot enough... the piece goes KABLAM and cracks... and that's pyrex, not normal glass. As it is I'm scared to put it in the kiln - I'd have much rather have put it in when I was finished making it rather than waiting but the kiln wasn't on so I let it cool and took some pix. On the positive side, when I do fire it some awesome colors should come out...at least on the shards. Keep yer fingers crossed for me.

Sorry about the pic quality. I was in a hurry Wink

After I spend about $600.00 more. I just dropped $600.00 on a purpose built annealing oven.

Well... I put it in the kiln last evening & it got a little crack Sad The good news is that if I don't find any more cracks, it's probably repairable!

It starts out as a tube. Smile First you pull a point then you make the pipe. Both links are loaded with pictures. This dude does it a bit differently - pulling points is better IMO

LOL...no

i mean something more suited to your current experience level that isnt the same as what you see on every shelf of a head shop...(swirly colors with dots of glass about)

how bout maybe like..all black glass?...all red glass with clear glass added to it....solid white?...i dunno...

i used to make these pipes out of metal pipe parts and Super Sculpey...basically it was clay that you baked then painted..turns rock hard..

so..i made these pipes that look like these cartooney cats sitting there holding the bowl and looking up at you...you would smoke from the tail (mouthpiece).. all the metal parts where the center of the sculpture..

they were crazy cool but a pain to create and not at all practical to smoke with and metal bowls = ghey...

but you have glass...the world is your oyster....if it were me..i would try and create a super clean straight forward pipe...a tool...something functional that is nice on the eyes...

go clean!...go solids....leave all the dead head sht to the headshops Wink

(note: im talking mostly out of my ass as i know yer just getting your feet wet with all this stuff...i think maybe im being trying to be creative vicarously through you cause working with glass is so cool)

get on with yer bad self....

Functional, simple, elegant, badass. I'm hearing you, but there's a reason most glass pipes look the way they do... so the trick is to be creative enough to make it happen in harmony with the glass...

Maybe you should get into this and we can collab!
