Rainbow Glass Coin

Walking into a glass shop is like walking around a rainbow made solid. Very hard things to photograph because of the translucency. The weight and smoothness is wonderful part of the experience too – we can throw the things across the room no trouble on carpet – I tried it!

There’s so many different ways to make a glass coin. I want to try them all! The hardest design element is actually the tracking and text. One option is to hand engrave the finished items but we’ll try it fired in place for starters. Here’s my design – black is etched into the coloured glass before being fired
