A dark member of the amber/purple family, named for Sasha Hess - he couldn’t get enough of it when it was still an Experimental color. This color is dense but transparent, and most often produces olive greens and soft browns. However, with a softer flame you can strike color ON the silver haze, particularly ambers, oranges, and blues. Oil Slick can also be worked in a very hot, high oxygen flame for more purples, blues and pastels. Sasha also sometimes kiln-strikes this color for more variations in shade, or quick-cools it between strikes. Occasionally this glass has visible bits of silver in the rods which can be mixed in. Versatile!
Size: Diameter 5-7mm, length 20", weight per rod .07 lb, approximately 12-15 rods per pound. There is a quarter pound minimum per color. All TAG rods are first quality.
ATTENTION: Due to the weight and length of the rods you may receive .30 pound vs .25 pound (as an example) when ordering. This will cause the cost to rise and the amount you expect to pay for your glass may change.
If this is a problem, please let us know and we will “underweigh” your glass. This means instead of .25 pound you may receive .20 to .22 pound. Please be aware that it is almost impossible to pull exactly .25 pound. We will always try our best to get as close as possible to the weight that is ordered, but due to the factors stated, these weights may substantially increase the total cost of your order.
