How many Ways can you Make a Disc?

I love to make discs when I torch! Recently, I challenged myself to see if I could come up with new ways to make discs. Here are the results of some of my experiments. These aren't necessarily my best work, they are just experiments in discs.

For example:
you have my traditional discs next to a flower disc. I need to work on those a bit.

Scroll down a bit and here's what you see:

I like both efforts.

There are two slightly different techniques, but the results are fun!

disc has a more primitive look to it, which goes to show you that you can change the shape of the disc and still have a disc.

You can also make

Freeform discs!


They don't have to be perfect, and even in the chaos, there is control.

Last, but not least, you can change the shape of a disc and add appendages. This disc clearly needs more work, but I think it has a lot of potential.

So, tell me, what types of discs do you like. What should I work on next?

amazing how much fun molten glass can be. I'm happy to have found another minnesotan handcrafter/lamper.
