Joy Munshower tested some glass for us and this is what she had to say.
“Both the new Avocado and Sage Green were easy to work, creamy and flowed well. Very easy to tame and manipulate with tools and held detailing. Sage Green Pastel is a warmer tone with red-brown tonality. The new Avocado Green is cooler in tone than the previous handpulled Avocado batch of glass. It has a distinctive tan-gray-green cast to it. It was also creamy and easy to work and manipulate. It was very well behaved.”
“I have also included a threesome of horse beads showing the gradation of color. From left to right is the new Sage Green Pastel handpulled, middle is OLD Avocado Green pastel handpulled and right is NEW Avocado Green handpulled”
