If you've ever wanted to learn the art of hand mixing borosilicate color, now's your chance! In this DVD Suellen shares her method of adding metallic oxides to the inside of hollow tubing, melting them in and drawing out solid colored rod. Her formulas were the basis for developing the Northstar line of colors in the '80's. Her winged dragons are legend, and her hobnail patterned perfume bottles are inspiring. She also creates an Aurora vessel, which shows how to remix a reactive color with clear to create a multicolored swirling bottle.
You'll see how she uses "offhand" blowing techniques that were taught to her by John Burton, and get to see short commentaries by Robert Mickelsen and Paul Trautman discussing how Suellen pioneered the development of the RUBY that we all know and love....
