Red Blue Fish II - Pate de Verre
I love this piece and wish that you all could see it in person. The light shining through it gives it an awesome effect. I melted it in two layers/ two stages and purposely did not melt the second layer completely and so you can see a "pebbly" look under the surface of the glass. I need to dremble the edges just a tad and it's finished. I'm trying to engineer the appropriate way to hang it. Wrap two bands of metal around it perhaps- since I made the back pebbly, I can't hang it the way I traditionally do. I also think it would be best to put light behind it. Any suggestions?
