I would like to do each of these projects, but my favorite is the Opaline Striker Frit Bowl. I love the play of light along its many surfaces. It is a very versatile project as the basic instructions can easily be altered to change the color and shape of the finished item. I think this technique would make a beautiful handkerchief vase placed over a drop mold. This is a project that can be done many times and the result is only limited by the artist's imagination.

My favorite of these projects is the Opaline Striker Frit Balls Bowl. It is such a nice piece and could be done in any number of colors or even with balls made from left over scraps of fusable glass.
