Frou Frou Raku

Another set in the making.
The base of each bead is black glass with a splattering of large size raku (iris orange) frit.
Each bean shaped lentil has a murrini that was added after pressing the bead. I use a pair of stainless steel ice tongs to make my funky lentils. Yes, I made the murrini.

Making murrini is very addicting.
A gratuitous plush photo.

It's a beautiful sunny morning here, cool and crisp. The light is long and slanting, a sign that fall is coming. I'm heading downstairs in a minute for a breakfast of sweet, local yellow plums and some nice strong black coffee.
