Based on the glass bowls from last weeks post.For the opaque glass I used normal cross stitches. The transparent glass effect was done using backstitches and half stitches. Tablerunner, ca. 16 x 16 cm on linen, 10 thread pr. cm.
These small bowls were my first attempts at working with float glass. I like the finished work. Also, all fingers are intact.
The blue bowl is decorated with seagulls (not angels). The seagulls were drawn directly onto the blue colored powder. The transparent edge was easy to make. I just had to whipe/remove the colored powder with my fingers.
After the second bowl (the white/orange), I were back in the world of cross stitching. This was like creating patterns with colored glass instead of needle and thread.
The third bowl inspired me to create a new cross stitch pattern, which is almost finished.
I look forward to do more work in this exciting way.
