faunapod by free-zero faunapod by free-zero
full-view for multiple angle views
completes the preliminary work of florapod, and together makes a set.
much more color work on this one:
torch-heated cane to draw on clear bubble, reduction flame to manipulate cane color,
scooped-on splotches of black powder, thick (multi-coat) layer of opaque red powder,
another thick (multi-coat) layer of opaque black powder, more torch-cane application of
another color, clear gather, and finally an overlay of gaffer salmon bar stock, then
quenched and blown to create a crackle pattern in the overlay, and from there formed like
florapod but a bit better...
one of my best blown pieces yet, and i really like all the subtle variations in color, particularly
on the inside.
i intended for this to have an almost grotesque fleshy animal type feel to it, and i'm pretty
happy with the results, although i feel it could have better detail, and i'm not entirely happy
with the striking of the salmon.
made in 4th semester glassblowing.

:flame: Ok so when does the alien crawl out?

Seriously though, this piece rocks. The colors are great - I really like the orange (salmon?) coloring and how you made it crackle with the black like that. The shape works well and appears organic in nature. A piece to definitely be proud of. Great job!
