Glass – a nightmare to photograph!

 

OK, I admit  it, leading is not my favourite technique of working with glass.. but combine it with fusing and the result can be quite pleasing.. but WHAT a nightmare it is to photograph!!

I suppose it doesn’t help that I only have a compact camera, but even so, even professional photographers with all their experience and paraphenalia can rarely capture the depth and vibrancy of glass. it just really needs to be seen in the flesh!

So this panel is made up of three fused pieces.. I have “jelly fused” the glass, (basically a slightly cooler firing in the kiln) which keeps a lot of the texture of the glass.. it’s one of those pieces you just want to keep stroking…
