And another drop ring vessel

Postby StaceyG » Thu May 23, 2013 7:40 am

This one used more opaque glass and dropped a little deeper than the other one. The lip came off a lot more easily on this one, thanks goodness. Less coldwork to do!

They both used scraps I had from Bullseye limited sheet glass, that used French Vanilla and light turquoise blue. I think I have enough left to make 1-2 more vases, but after that I am out of luck, since this was a "limited edition" glass.

This is my new fave glass......and happily, Bullseye has added it to their standard production line!
Beautiful drops!

Beautiful! I'd love to try these.
How do you take the lip off?

I remove them very carefully with a tile saw.

Stacey,
WOW. Beautiful vase. I've been working on trying to get a decent drop ring and cutting the lip off with my tile saw, and came across your posts. I'm curious how you ended up cold working the lip on your vase. It looks fabulous, but I got the impression from reading through the posts that you don't have a lap...Did you get those edges by hand? If so, what did you use - hand pads? Sure would appreciate some advice!

I use a flat lap grinder to smooth and polish the edges. It was a big investment but well worth it. Also helped to grind off some kiln wash that got stuck on the bottom of a flat piece.

I teach a drop vessel workshop at our studio, Oatka School of Glass, in Batavia, NY on a regular basis and have taught it down in Florida at AAE Glass.
