Candy canes

Red and white twisted together makes a candy cane.

Glass artists twist two colors of glass together to achieve a new color, or to make the striped cane for decorative uses.

Once I started noticing red and white stripes, they popped up everywhere.  It was almost like getting a new car and noticing every other car of that make for the next month.

The red needed a strong blue to chill with, and the candy cane series was born.

Here’s a video from the Corning Museum of Glass about pulling glass cane.
