Original Glass Art: Spring Crocus
This week I watched a Japanese Tonbodama DVD entitled “How to Volume 4: Flower in Glass” that demonstrates how to create flower implosions using complex cane, dots, encasing and mixed colours. This crocus was made around a ball of clear glass using complex pistil and petal canes. It was encased in stages so the biggest problem was accidentally trapping air bubbles and managing the size of the pendant. The glass used was Effetre, Reichenbach, CIM and Lauscha.
