|some of the hand pulled cane, twisties and stringer that are on my work bench this morning|
What might I get if I encased a blob of yellow with some of that transparent blue I never use, then stripe with small lines of my very expensive silver blue? If it sounds workable..[and some of course are not.. I have a series of gray cane to attest to that.] the dreamed up mix is then melted down and pulled into a workable diameter of glass rod or 'cane' ['stringer' is pulled skinny skinny and a 'twistie' is twisted and pulled at the same time and 'cane' is simply lined up with stripes running neatly along your mandrel and slowly pulled]~ And so is born a luscious [hopefully!] new color to be used in future designs.
Below are a few recent examples of cane and stringer use.
