Australian Aboriginal Painting

These are Australian Aboriginal paintings. Although we dont know the meanings, the colours and designs are unique. They are normally sacred 
designs and symbols, although there is now  a movement towards making these paintings decorative for the art market.
They are beautiful.

MWK glass fusing experiments

Had lots of problems with this - keeping the 'dots' on while firing.  Eventually I bought some thicker glass tac, which worked much better. I did lose one or two, but at least the rest stayed on.  Link to my Microwave Fusing Blog
This piece had kitchen foil between the black glass base and the top dichroic glass. I think it accentuated the dichroic colours.
before firing - dots on already fired glass piece
after firing: - I overfired this .... the dots 'splatted' and the shape became oval - but I like it
