I was striving for flow and movement of the glass. Flaming Waves was the result of intentionally designing blues around red and Yellow striving for bold color flow. After cutting glass and laying out into my initial design pattern, the glass was dammed to contain it, the kiln was programmed to slowly rise to over 1700 degree Fahrenheit then I put on protective gear and opened the kiln. After observing the look at how the glass had formed in its molten state, I raked the glass to create a design with more movement and flow, then the glass was annealed and cooled, coldworked and finished into a design. For the Flaming Waves, I stretched the design by putting it in the kiln at higher temperatures to thin the glass - stretching the design
