This regal pile represents many separate torch sessions and my tenacious efforts to accumulate a truly decadent pile of this glass 'lust'. I think I did it! While the theme here is silvered glass, the 'star' is Pandora. The first time I bought it, from Moretti & More, Bill Thornton told me that it likes to sit in a hot kiln forever and the color will blossom... but what I find is that it does what it wants to, when it wants... and it sometimes does it quite beautifully! Maybe this rarity makes it one of those things I keep chasing after? I just don't know.
Face it, we all like to be successful. We like to make things that turn out as they're supposed to and like to manage to do it over and over with the same results... (no, that's not the definition of insanity...) But - some of the silvered glasses are finicky, this one in particular seems to tease and torment me repeatedly - and only gives an inch when it knows I'm about to send it to the 'do not use EVER AGAIN" pile.
Well, this week, it decided to play nicely... and I love the results. Let me introduce you to Pandora. I let her out of her box this week... again.
