"Volcano"

This pot melt was created with scrap glass and using a bubble mold with many holes in it. After 15 hours it looks like the inside of a volcano and is about 1/4" thick. The swirling pattern and vibrant orange/red detail gives the piece focus. The inspiration came from a trip to Lanzerote some years ago. At Timanfaya water was poured into a borhole which becomes a sprewing geyser. Just a few meters under the surface temperatures reach several hundred degrees.
