the large glass mountains

here they are, straight out of the kiln! they turned out better than i anticipated.
sorry about the photos - better quality ones could follow later, after they get cleaned up and finished.

the small glass mountains

i made the moulds for these little mountains before the easter break, and they were waiting (patiently) for this week. Anthony, one of the glass technicians, helped me pour liquid glass into the moulds, and today they came out! i'm amazed. i ground the bases a little this afternoon, and then i'll have to polish them up and sandblast on Monday.

There's two massive mountains still in the kiln. solid glass.

 i've also been making some more tiny figures. these are only bisquit-fired, without their bases.
time is starting to go faster and faster. there's less than two months now till the degree show is up...
