Stunning bowl. Where are you guys getting the colored mica? I have found it in silver, copper and gold.

Michael, what a terrific bowl! Did you spray on the mica and cap the
entire blank with clear glass? Love your clean and flowing design.

Nita,
I fused the clear and black together first, then applied mica's. Capping micas can be kind of tricky, if ther kiln is to hot they sink and disapear, to cool and they can create air bubbles in you cap. So I say why risk it, put them on top and tell your buyer not to eat off of it. Some things are ment for decorative use only.
I hope that answers your question.

Not that I condone or recommend eating off a piece of artwork, but why wouldn't you eat off it? The micas are inert and very rugged.

Tony,
I was under the impression that there would be a chance of ingesting
the micas. I didnt want to poison my client base, but if there is little or no risk of ingestion put some pasta in them and have a party.


Thanks for the info Toney
