When I create a particular piece and load it into the kiln, most times I have a pretty good idea of what it will look like when it comes out. This was my original design for my Full Moon Hike idea, but when I opened the kiln, I was surprised. The iridized glass that I used for the moon that I thought would be sparkly and obvious was very subtle. I liked the piece, but it didn’t look anything like a full moon… it appeared to be more the absence of a full moon… and Lunar Eclipse was born.
