Every now and then I get a bit hungry while Im working at my torch. The hungrier I become, the more my mind wanders towards visions of food and the more my glass pieces become food-orientated. This hunger effect can be easily seen in many of the pieces Ive previously made - such as Breakfast In Texas
, Glass Hotdog
, and my Glass Cheerio and Milk Pendant
My hunger has affected my art once again and Ive created these new pieces which Im calling French Fries. While they may not be French Fry colored
, they are indeed French Fry shaped being grooved rectangles. Thats right, each of these beads is actually a rectangle with four distinct grooved sides. Now some of you may never have seen a French Fry in this shape, but where I live they are quite abundant being served at numerous restaurants around town.
Heres an image of what the real French Fries often look like: [link]
(conservapedia - French Fries). Of course, Ive taken some creative liberties with these French Fries by aligning their grooves on an angle (to make them more aesthetically appealing) and by using colors that no French Fry has (or probably should) ever come in.Further comment:
These beads were a lot of fun to make. All of them were made in one late night / early morning span of time. They were allowed to cool in vermiculite for 8 hours while I slept. Even with such a long and slow cooling time, three of them still shattered. Sadly, all three that shattered were really pretty. For some reason, its never the ugly ones that blow themselves apart.
Please note me if you are interested in purchasing any of these delicious glass beads. Guarantee:
