A mixed media piece: a lampwork glass bead in a ceramic freeform bowl, symbolizing the vast and mysterious Cosmos.

Creating these glass beads often makes me feel like I am forging planets - glowing hot glass, so hot - they can drip like honey. So when I spin it - it becomes a ball - just like our planet was spinning until it became a ball and slowly cooled down, revealing its unique texture.

Materials used:

Black ceramic clay

Glass bead

Glass seed beads

Sterling Silver clasps

the Orange Planet
