Most of you have seen this elegant @mikeramanglass sherlock already, but it is definitely worth a repost. His clean, refined shapes make our new Lotus White look so good!
And thanks to @pyroscopic for the sexy pics! They're a beautiful addition to our #instagallery

We are proud to announce the official release of Lotus White!

Our first SANDCRAFTED® OpalTone is a dense, easy to work, next-level white. The overall viscosity is much improved from the Beta version, meaning much less stiff in and out of the flame.

Lotus White has a bright, glossy finished surface. It layers up beautifully and leaves no pitting or graininess. So it's a great option for those of you sandblasting, etching, and carving. Finally a museum-quality white for the borosilicate palette!

Thanks to everyone who tried the Beta release and offered feedback! This one was in the works off and on for several years, and we are so happy to see it finally put to use.

Lotus White available now!

Janis Miltenberger recently taught a class in Niijima, Japan (an island east of Tokyo). The class focused on doing some nature replication and used lots of Molten Aura Labs colors, including our new Lotus White!

more sweet Lotus White reticello from @matt_tyner

Lotus White 1st quality are out of stock, but we have abnormals available for anyone still wanting to try out this version. Abnormals are the same great glass, just out-of-round rods and a bit more air.

We'll be back to some color development in the new year with plans to finalize this white, get Meta-Terrania back on track, and of course new colors plucked straight from the future.

@matt_tyner put an early batch of Lotus White to the test for us a while back. This klein recycler was one of his creations. There's solid white sections and marias, vac-stacked horns and bridges, reticello, and clear-coated parts. The section that looks like Moonstone is actually Lotus White thinned out using several layers of extra heavy wall clear.

@gl_asshole also played around with some beta Lotus White over the past couple months and came up with some pretty rad sculptural pendants and carb caps.

The personality in his work is astounding! A unique vision coupled with strong design and sculpting skills makes his work immediately recognizable.

The lotus flower is a symbol of divine perfection. It represents the enlightened mind floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire.

Lotus White is a next level white for the borosilicate palette. We're still in the late stages of beta testing and refining with this color but wanted to give you a chance to try out what we've got. It's been tested in full rigs, layered effects, murrine work, vac-stacks, and sculptural designs. We'll be posting more examples over the next several days.

The lotus and orchids pictured above were brought to life on a volcanic island in the south pacific ocean using fire and the creative force of Jupiter. Huge Mahalo to @jupiternielsen for making these amazingly stunning flowers with our colors. Solid sculpted Lotus White petals as well as Telemagenta, Gold Amethyst, and Plantphibian accents and layers over Lotus White. Hit him up for details and availability!

Like all of our new glasses, this is made from scratch using sand and a completely different approach than the whites you are used to. The glass is very smooth in the flame and leaves a beautifully bright, glossy surface.

This BETA version has a unique viscosity curve, meaning it feels gooey in the flame, but is stiffer overall than clear. Larger, thicker, and more complex pieces will need plenty of soak time and proper annealing. We recommend 1100F garage/anneal temp.

BETA available now at moltenaura.com
