В последнее время многие российские лэмпвокеры заинтересовались электроформингом. И наш маленький коллектив никак не мог пройти мимо.;)
Знакомьтесь: Kate Fowle Meleney и ее бусины.
This urn is made of ivory Effetre glass, with copper and silver leaf added. It is matted and electroformed. Before the patina is sealed on the copper, it is removed from the edges with a miniature buffing wheel.

Red Sea Pod

Garden Double Pod
Lampworked glass with enamels and copper leaf, electroformed copper with liver of sulfur patina.
This pendant is lampworked and fumed with silver. When it's cool, it has gold foil attached and fused to the surface, over which ceramic overglazes are painted. The entire piece is then electroformed in copper, which is patinaed with liver of sulphur.
This pendant is a simple interpretation of a cottage, with lampworked glass covered in an electroformed copper skin. Liver of sulphur gives the surface its rich patina.
From the Biotech Series, this pod shaped bead has been lampworked and fumed, then a deep deposit of enamel is fired into place, over which ceramic overglazes are painted. The final electroformed skin is patinaed with liver of sulphur.
This lampworked pendant is the Spiral from the Biotech Series. It has an electroformed copper skin on it and measures 3 1/2".
Yurt Pendants resemble dwellings. From my Biotech Series, they are both lampworked glass that have had a sprinkle of enamel added to them before electroforming the copper cages on their surfaces. Each has been put on a steel cable. Including the "tassel", they measure 4".
