More of my work...

Clear glass ground, mixed with cobalt oxide and re-melted to give an aerated patty suitable for grinding into pâte de verre (top) and an example of the level of gassing from cobalt mixtures during casting (bottom), with the suspended plaster core forced completely out of the mould.  Pretty nice effect if you can think of a use for it.
