Polymer Clay Fall Wine Glass

Here are some wine glasses I made today from the canes in this issue of Cane Builder. I didn’t put any bond or adhesive on these glasses.  The glass needs to be clean.  Press the cane slices on very firmly.  When you look at the clay from the inside of the glass, you will be able to see when it completely adheres to the glass.  I’ve been able to hand wash these glasses without any clay falling off.  One important part of the design is to make sure that all of the clay is connected.  Because the clay is interlaced, and because it fits the contour of the glass, it doesn’t really have anywhere to go even if a small part gets disconnected.

It’s still important to treat these glasses carefully.  Never put them in the dishwasher or microwave!!!

I put the glasses in the oven first.  I let the glass preheat and cool off in the oven.  I don’t know if this is necessary, but better safe than sorry!
