I am actually not a huge fan of chocolate, you can pass it around and I’ll probably say “no thank you”…. however, if you offer me chocolate that has any sort of orange in it, near it, beside it, within in, I will be pushing old ladies out of my way to get to it.
I love the blend of chocolate and orange – anyone with me here?
I bought the glass like this. It is gorgeous and bright orange and full of swirls of different oranges, when I first purchased it I thought it was going to end up this bright orange colour and I was wrong.
When I first designed this work I added orange glass fragments to the external trim of the design. Here it is unfired.
I put them in the kiln and full fuse them to 760 degrees C which is about 1400 degrees F. this changes the colour of the glass to cola kind of colour.
I was shocked that the orange centre swirls didn’t match the orange glass “frit” but you know, its ok cos I realized that it reminds me of chocolate together with orange – yay!
So now one of the regular items that I make for my galleries is called CHOCOLATE ORANGE, and I’m pleased to let you know that they sell like the proverbial hot cakes. Here are some images of the finished pieces that are ready for a recent delivery.
Thank you for reading about my work.
