The design features aqua blue and vanilla in patterns. The first step was to make a temporary mold of a music note, then to create the swirls of each color into a glass/design. The glass is then fired to cast into the mold. aqua blue and vanilla cream have different properties - one glass is sulfur bearing and the other is copper bearing which creates reacts when adjacent to each other in the kiln - showing as black in this music note. After that firing, I ground smooth all the edges and then it was fire polished in the kiln. The music note is epoxied to a stand that was made by cutting three pieces for varying sizes and tack fusing them into the stand.
Making music notes was inspired while I was playing the piano. I was learning a new piece that was complex for me. The music notes were staring back at me. All of a sudden, I started thinking about the concept of a music note sculpture. I immediately went to my studio to test out the idea and continue to refine the design as well as creating various color patterns.
