- Going to be doing this and transforming them, hopefully, by tonight into a Goddess.
If you get sucked into the Michael’s vortex with any extra money.
I’m thinking about making some goddess. Puppets like Lady Olivia here of the Fellowship of Isis just for fun. The first one will probably be Brighid and then Hecate and Quan Yin because those are the ones I was ordained to and then will see. I’m feeling the need to do something with my hands. Soooo, do I make all three or more aspects of Brighid or one combined. Have to plan….
Another piece of fused dichroic glass. The spooky spider and her web was etched freehand with hydrofluoric acid and then fired in the kiln overnight at 1500°. It was then wrapped in silver and orange wire that was colour over silver wire and a pewter spider charm and hematite beads used at the hanger. It’s hanging on black silk.
Last week I posted a piece of my glass work for a blog party. I’d forgotten how much fun glass work is. Glass work is as close as you can get to working with an actual magical substance because it is. What most people don’t know is that glass is not a solid. It’s a really slow liquid.
You can see this in very old windows. The glass is thicker at the bottom than it is at the top because it has slowly flowed due to gravity. You can also see the effects in an earthquake because it will flow outward and reach a cooler point in the air and shatter. This is why you never ever run out of a building during an earthquake. Thousands of glass needles have just been formed and the only place it has to go on down.
When you work with fused glass you play with cold glass cutting or etching with acid or you can work with it in the kiln under high heat to get the effects you want.
Glass is changeable under some lights it can be one colour and under high heat it is more colour. You can add metal to it or powdered glass and change it to other colours. If it’s dichroic it will have one colour under sunlight and under artificial light another set of colours. Working with it is never the same twice. You can write what you did down and try to make it the same but the magic changes it.
Working with metal is fun and can be just as transformative but not near as much magic as glass. Glass is modern alchemy. Glass is magic.
