Week 27- Texture

Focus on life.. Texture


Finally a prompt I like!  I got all gung ho and photographed all sorts of neat bead tools... this is the only picture I took that was in focus
I thought the texture on the dirty rug (bead shop doorway) was kind of interesting...  This is actually a relatively new tool....



I used to do a lot of leaded glass panels.... mainly textured clear with a little bit of colour....
This was the prototype for a much larger commissioned window.  I made the roundels on the torch.  The commissioned window is here . The scarf in the same blog was never finished it was ripped apart and turned back into balls!




















I

Beads made with one of my favorite bead rollers These were made using the BR-5301 RIBBED SMALL ROUND SPACERS graphite mold.  I also have  BR-5101 the     RIBBED SMALL STUBBY BICONE SPACERS... I find  the bicones to be much harder to make!  

The beads in between my etched glass beads are carved Quahog shells made by Marcia Poirier... she makes gorgeous pendants and earrings  from Quahog shells under the name Wildabout Wampumhttp://www.wildaboutwampum.com/index.html

To see how other people interpreted texture   & to see where the 'garbage/treasures' in lasts weeks ? post came from?

Great post, featuring texture you make as opposed to texture we find. Great work!

Wow, beautiful glass panel! The texture in that is marvellous!
Love your tool against that carpet too...the juxtaposition of lines is really neat. That would be a fun pic to play with in one of the editing programs.

The glass panel is gorgeous and so are the beads! Really great photos for texture!

My Life Under the Bus said...

For some reason I had the image of glass being poured over a plate or something to add texture. This never even crossed my mind! You learn something new every day!
