Hmmm, not completely bowled over....

Since I've had my kiln i've been trying to use a slump mould to slump bowls but have yet slumped one correctly.  This is probably because i've got a habit of skimming through instructions and just trying things out for myself.  So I recently made a new creation in readiness of slumping it.  In my feeble attempts to save money I decided to create an 'arty' bowl, using as little glass as possible.  I think it's got an 80's feel to it myself, it reminds me of the copious amounts of 'edgy' black furniture my parents amassed from the 80's/early 90's.  I'm not sure what to think of it right now, it did slump all the way into the mould this time though which is a plus point.  My instructional ignorance has allowed me to create an array of different shaped bowls with just one mould too which is pretty cool.
