Unfinished business.

Bit more tweaking with colours and patterns/layout should keep me amused.




Currently in Nauru on my second stint wondering at times if I made the right decision. Last time I returned home with a cracked bone in my hand but am anxious to fly home only slightly hung over in three weeks and ready for pushing these along. Washing night tonight so a little bored and felt it couldn't hurt to show these. Poverty here hasn't inspired me yet, but the pinnacles and fossils have. peace, haydo

Nice! My favorite is the 4th one -- grey without borders.

Thanks for sharing. I love looking at people's work. I especially like the color and pattern of the fourth piece. (Being somewhat geographically challenged I had to Google Nauru.)

Great pieces! My fav is the second. Almost looks like big fossils in a dark granite countertop.

Thank you all for positive feed back. I'm hoping that by working overseas will allow me the R&R time to enter into the RanAmok glass prize here in Oz. With other stuff I've been playing with. Sometimes the process gets lost with what's going on .Mackay is hard sell, which is good to push me to a higher level. I want to get on to the islands of the Whitsundays eventually with organic coral like formations, for sure. peace, haydo

Great work; absolutely stunning. These pieces really speak to me in a geological context! I think you are well on your way to capturing the essence of some of the fossil corals and limestones. Your 5th piece reminds me of Stramatolites (in cross-sectional view).....similar to those found in Shark Bay (Western Australia). The 4th piece could be compared to packed oolites (altough they are concentric)......but the form is there. Haven't been to Nauru, but have seen pictures of the pinnacles. Keep up with the experimentation......you seem to be on the right path.

I see larvae or cocoons. I like them all. The one on the far left looks thicker, is it? I like when glass gives the illusion of texture. You're on to something John!

Thanks Leonard and Shawn. The one on the left is thicker,as thick as width. I have ground these chunky type of pieces into cylinders before as gifts. Still waiting to see if it's worth the effort. Flat lap makes cold working a breeze and getting a piece to finished shape and polish is something I don't mind doing. peace, haydo
