270/365 September 27

Firing of metals they take on whole new colors. we were probably the least happy with these pieces but then they are experiments and you have to do this to understand what they are going to look like and how they react with each other.

Bronze foil turns blue when foiled. coper wire turns pinkish and silver wire turns blue.

my least favorite. Note when working with the paints what you see is what you get. I was hoping for some meltage but no such luck.

it is the same piece only just before firing I took the hanger out and put it inside. the copper looking metal in the above piece is actually bronze and it turns blue.

A large bubble formed near the copper because it was not pound down flat enough.

  1. I can't get over how much the colors change. I would never have thought that.
