I came across a box of old glass lenses. I'm not sure what they were in their first life (Do you know? If so, leave a comment!), but they had this great texture to them. T and I had been thinking of making some screens or light fixtures, and this looked like it might be a good source material. And who wants a box filled with dusty old disks of glass? Well, I mean, other than me.
I was headed to the studio to work on some glass pieces, and I got the idea to shape one of them in the kiln. When it came out, the lens was transformed into the cutest little dish, perfect for corralling earrings or loose change on your dresser. I'll be making more of these.
