"These are made with Zimmermann Z921 Aquamarine frit and fine silver foil over Obsidian. The focal was flashed quickly through a light reduction flame and it has taken on a kind of Peacock-ish sheen." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"This is a base bead of Obsidian, Taxco and Med Purple, melted in, reduced, and encased. . . This is awesome - I love these colours." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"And Obsidian is gorgeous with silver glass. It brought out nice colour in my TerraNova2 frit, and it did absolutely wonderful things with my reducing silver glass frit." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"The Obsidian does bleed out into the Opal Yellow, but in a very pleasing way - the warm grey/brown working nicely with the warm, buttery Opal Yellow. The end result is a sort of toasted zebra effect." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Obsidian with Triton, reduced and fumed a little. Not sure that it is amazingly more effective than on anything else - but you can see that the bead Triton is reflective enough to show the pink t-shirt I was wearing while shooting it!" Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Here is Obsidian on Ivory. I gave this quite a lot of heat - to see if it would break up, crawl, web, or otherwise do something interesting. And, as a matter of fact - it did." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"When combined with silver glass, the surface fumes a beautiful metallic. With Triton, it is an amazing midnight blue!" See more at Darlene's blog.
