WOW ! It looks quite detailed and lovely. This is incredible work!September 5, 2008 at 8:16 pm #10676Magic Glass LadyParticipant
What an exciting piece!!! How large were the bars that you cut crossways?? Do you use a circle saw for thicker glass and what size blade??

I really like your use of colour. What size is this piece?

The piece is about 7"x7" and it was made in a pattern bar class I took from Phil Hoppes here in AZ. The bar was probably about 8" x 1" wide and we used a 8" tile saw to get the strips. Right now its my favorite piece but I am hoping to get back into the studio once the weather cools a bit. Thank you for your compliments!September 5, 2008 at 11:48 pm #10679NanCeeParticipant

Is the piece slumped? I can’t tell from the picture.
I also love your choice of colors! Very nice work!September 6, 2008 at 3:12 am #10681glassmommaParticipant
Jan……it’s really a beautiful piece! Great job!!!September 6, 2008 at 4:29 am #10682ktischer2001Participant
This is a beautiful piece! The colors are lovely. I am especially drawn to the reflection in the edges….how did you work them?

The piece has a lot of visual impact and reminds me of Africa. Do you have a name for it yet? To me it looks like a lot of people. I’d suggest "WE ARE THE WORLD".

I had to think of a name for it real quick for the submission at work and PB by J seemed to work on a couple of levels (the most basic one being: Pattern Bar by Jan). Not terribly esoteric, but there ya go.
The edges were worked on a wet belt sander and if you saw them in person, you would see right away that its a newbie’s piece. The reflections are a wonderful effect that I didn’t plan on but will definintely try to repeat in the next one. And yes, it was slumped into a very shallow sushi mold.
Thank you all again for your feedback! Jan
