May I introduce you to one of my favorite Kaiser Lee Board Molds?
It is a 12″ x 12″ x 1″ (30 x 30 x 2.5 cm) Kaiser Lee Board with a 3″ x 3″ (7.5 x 7.5 cm) hole in the center. I call it my kiln shelf with a hole.
The dish sits perfectly and I can use the wide rim for unusual designs. And yes, we fuse and slump in one firing.
This Ikebana Container was created by Helen at our BIG Arts Class on Sanibel. She used a piece of Wissmach Prisma 96 and created this impressive dish with it.
If you have this piece of KLB laying around and don’t know what to do with it, just cut a hole into it and start creating. Should you get tired of it – may be after 18 years – you can always cut another shape into the mold and use it again for 18 years.
And no, we did not cap the Wissmach Glass. It is just beautiful shiny after it is fired. I wish you could see the original.
Oh, and if you don’t have it around, we are still selling it, and so do all of our distributors.
Will you be coming to the Las Vegas Glass Craft Expo this year?
If you are no sure yet, which class you would like to take, have a look at Marcia Bernadette’s class. Yes, even so I will not be teaching a full class, I will have a short demo and lecture in each of her classes.
