The Glass Design Sketchbooks – 2004-2008

Glass Vessel Design 2
I have over 250 pages of sketches, notes and concepts in 2 big notebooks, but they’ve been packed in a box since ’08.  I took them out for a look 3 weeks ago.

I want to post up a few pages before they go back into storage.

I’ve experimented with almost every hot-working and cold-working technique at one time or another.  Also casting and mold-blowing.  One of my favorite techniques was layering a dull color over top of a bright color, then dipping the hot glass in water to crackle it so the bright inner color shows through the cracks (in the style of the vessel above right).
