Wasser Spirit Necklace
Jewelry, OCT17

Wasser glass ceased to be made about ten years ago but I was fortunate enough to acquire some a few months back. These are 6 x 6 sheets of hand poured glass, some very thin and colorful, which don't shatter. I shared them with a fellow jewelry friend who proceeded to cut them into free form shapes, drill holes in them and tumble them till they were smooth as a baby's butt. She sent me a nice collection of them, ready to incorporate into a new creation. I decided to alternate them with reversible ceramic clay discs I had decorated with Mayco Designer Liner underglazes and this is the result!

    I’ve never heard of Wasser glass before. You did a beautiful job of incorporating the charms with your clay pieces. I find your necklace mesmerizing and could spend a long time just staring at all the colors and the different patterns.

    Wasser is a hand-cast, superior art glass unlike any other glass you’ve experienced. Its opaque and semi-translucent rich colors with beautiful variations and patterning make it a very desirable hand-cast glass. The idiosyncrasies add tremendously to the visual aesthetics of the glass. Thin and lightweight, it is easy to cut and shape with no shards. The original Wasser Glass was hand made in Germany but production of it ceased about 10 years ago when the facility where it originated closed.
    Thank you for your kind words…
