Starry Night Tiles

Starry Night Tiles

Well, it’s been a long time coming. I originally did these Starry Night inspired tile series in 2011 and then in sat in bubble wrap until earlier this Spring. I originally saw them as a wrap-around in a standard bathtub but the custom shower, we eventually went with, was much larger so I opted to cut off the ends to fit just one wall.

After the tile was done we had to wait many weeks for the custom glass shower doors. After waiting for our installer to find time in his scheduled but the door must have been dropped in-transit because while installing the tempered glass doors one half of the door just shattered into a million pieces while just holding it. I was tired of waiting to post this. So here is our new bathroom sans the mirror and half the glass doors.

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.
