Eyeballs

Eyeballs

Posted by Julz on 5/1/2010
I learned to make eyeballs from Master Eyeball maker Walter Hellbach. These are some simple spoons made out of boro practicing the techniques I learned from him a few years ago (using Lauscha glass)...They started out as just something simple to make with some practice eyeballs I had lying around my shop, now I have orders for them like crazy! The eyeballs themselves take me a few hours (unless you add the 4-8 hours of mixing colors for each different shade)

I thought it would be fun to make the "whites" of the eye change color so I fumed the inside with silver & gold...It makes the iris look like its floating...the pipe is A/P tubing with clear swirls
