All glass is shaped in the flame of a Bethlehem Barracuda surface mix torch which runs off tanked oxygen and propane. The glass goodies are then placed in a Paragon digitally controlled kiln and annealed overnight for strength, durability and color saturation. Most boro used in my studio has a high silver content which reacts with the flame chemistry (oxygen to propane mix proportions) and will continue to react in the atmosphere of the kiln. When a piece comes out of the flame it is not always the mix of color it will be when it comes out of the kiln.

Pictures are taken on a table next to a window with natural light coming through. Borosilicate glass art tends to look darker indoors. No color editing or altering is done to this photo.
