I have a project that I hope will interest some of you with obscure
(to me) expertise. I made a champagne flute for Gallery I/O’s
exhibit of same , just concluded, and I’ve received my flute back. It
consists of a etched and pierced silver base which holds a sheet of
titanium which I rolled into an almost tubular cone, anodized with a
landscape, riveted, and inseted in to the base. I don’t have a
really decent image of it, but I’ll put what I have up on my blog,
NoelYovovich.blogspot.com. The problem is, it is not water (or
champagne) tight. I would love to figure out some type of liner. I
don’t want the liner to stick out the top beyond the titanium. Wha t
I imagine is some kind of thermoplastic that I could heat up, and
shape to fit. If it could be blown in like a bubble so it conformed,
hardened, a nd could be trimmed to match the titanium, that would be
perfect. Color is also important-- clear would be best. I don’t think
this could be done with glass-- certainly not by me, anyway! Ideas?
This may not be possible/ practical, but I thought I’d ask.
