Comb Honey

This comb honey design is not that hard to achieve.

It has the appearance of a honey comb, or honeycomb that was built by sweet little stinging honey bees.

You don’t have to be a honey bee to create this nest.

This mass of round shaped cells can be created in any color of glass.

Take a solid piece of glass and add a few pre-fired clear dots then fire the piece inside a kiln.

I have chosen the color yellow for my base or blank piece and it almost has an appearance of Swiss cheese.

Design a piece out of any color you decide and add item to your piece if desired.

Follow the written directions below, or view the in depth YouTube video that I have created to demonstrate how this technique is accomplished.
