More Chilbo (Korean Enameling)

My second chilbo class involved learning how to work with millefiori glass. It is an Italian word that means a thousand flowers. It involves working with canes of glass and making very complicated patterns. The glass is then cut into slices and we were working with theses slices of millefiori. The picture above has mine piece on the left and my teacher's piece on the right before firing.

This is a second piece we did. This is my teacher's before firing.

These are my two pieces after firing. I have so much fun at class and I'm always amazed at what comes out of the kiln.

Thanks for sharing on your blog. I read the Culture articles, and the Ajou article, very interesting and I appreciate the balance you bring to cultural observation!

Do you ever visit the Little Sisters of the Poor (close to Home Plus and Hanil Town Apt)?

Pax et bonum,
