Spiky Glass Shibori

Very exciting at college today (well, an exciting moment in amongst the endless knitting!), I had knitted a square using wire, and yesterday it was put in the kiln with a sheet of glass on top! The glass obviously melted through the holes in the knitted and made really interesting shapes which do look a bit like shibori. Some of the spikes were so thin I had to snap them off or risk spiking someone as I walked past, they were also too delicate and kept waving precariously around.

It creates a lovely pattern if you hold it up to the light (this is looking at it from the other side)
