Orange Swirl


The results of yesterday's introduction to glass making and the hot shop at the Chrysler Museum of Art's Glass Studio. I made this glass paperweight using a combination of opaque orange and translucent amber colored glass chips and then twisted the hot glass to create the spiral effect. Couldn't have done it with the help of our great instructor Hannah Kirkpatrick. Canon 7D, 1 sec @ f/16.0, ISO 200, 100mm macro lens, LED flash light shining down the center of the glass to illuminate from the interior.
