Bullseye Murrine

So here is the story. I had access to 2″ stainless steel tubing and found they were good for firing Bullseye stringers into Murrine designs using a kiln. For a brief period I tried to sell the molds with kiln paper to fit and firing instructions.
 
I am not selling the tubes anymore but I have all these murrine available. 
For the Sams, Sallys, Sarahs or Singens, The pixilated “S” weighs 275 grams and the only piece cut off of it is about 20 grams.

Stacking stringer. You could make something lie this or just use a box lid, tilted, so the stringers stay where you put them.

Big Island

In 2001 we moved to the Big Island of Hawaii and bought five acres with a house, a guest house (Ohana) and a with a few avocado trees on it and turned it into a working Kona Coffee Farm. After spending a few weeks in the Kona District of the Big Island of Hawaii, at 2000 feet in elevation and seeing the fog roll up the slopes of Mauna Loa, we named the farm “Kona Mist”.
