Harvest Ltd Run (511217)<br />An opaque earthy orange.

An opaque earthy orange.

"Harvest is a beautiful buttery soft and creamy opaque orange. It gave me some really pretty blush as I worked it [the glass was not all one tone but gave me some nice variation]. It also etched beautifully." See more at Amy's blog. – Amy Hall

CiM Tester Feedback

  • Special thanks to Trudi Doherty & Melanie Graham for providing the photo in this section.
"Here, you can see that Harvest is lighter and a little more on the yellow side than CiM Phoenix, but substantially less yellow than the also-new CiM Monarch. The other colours I compared it with here were CiM Sunset [it's a little less vibrant than Sunset], and Effetre Light and Dark Zucca. It's lighter and more yellow than those Effetre colours as well."

"In the pics you can see a bigger bead which base is half Effetre White and half Effetre Dark Ivory. Next there are three basic beads, upper made with reducing flame, middle oxidizing flame and last with neutral flame. Then there is a bead covered deliberately badly with clear, and a black bead with dots over it. Harvest is a well behaving glass. It does not bleed very much, when covered badly with clear glass. I think that if I need yellow oranges for something, I would gladly use Harvest." Read more at Maikki's blog.

"Harvest is a deeper creamy orange. It also has some darker and lighter struck areas, though is less pronounced than Monarch. The rod was very good at going in and out of the flame – no problems with cracking." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Harvest is a pretty medium orange. I found that Harvest boiled a little while I was using it, but not seriously enough that it affected the surface finish or colour of the finished beads, so if you are using it and it foams up on you a bit, just carry on. Like Phoenix, Harvest is a bit of a striker. Repeated heating and cooling turn it a more uniform, darker orange than you would get working it cool and without multiple reheatings."

"Harvest is an opaque orange and was an absolute delight to work with. No issues at all. Harvest is a rich, deep orange that is absolutely essential for any form of autumnal beads. I’d go so far as to say that it is the nicest orange I have ever used, both physically and colour-wise. Harvest is smooth with a few striations but none of that horrid patchiness that you get with some opaque oranges. You don’t need to faff about with striking or anything; Harvest, much like Creamsicle and Butternut, takes care of itself. These photos were taken indoors in natural daylight."

"Harvest is a bit brighter than Alley Cat but not as bright as Creamsicle." Read more at Caroline's blog.

"Harvest is a streaky orange that goes grey when hot like most of the coral colours do. It cools back down to orange, but is quite streaky and variable in colour. Your mileage may vary - as you can see from other testers, they find it to be an even and consistent colour - so you need to remember that we all have our own variables and our own way of working. If you don't get the same results as someone else - it doesn't mean there is something wrong with you!" Read more at DragonJools blog.

"These little flower bud beads have a core of Harvest with some Orange Crush petals swiped on top. Harvest is a very pretty mid orange opaque, slightly brighter than Creamsicle and quite similar in appearance to a long time sold out favourite of mine called Alley Cat."

"Harvest melted with no pitting or shocking, I did notice while using it that the glass both in the rod and bead would strike from a chalky white to a darker shade, but as you can see it worked out evenly! Closest colour to Harvest was Creamsicle, with Harvest having a touch more coral tone. Both Harvest & Monarch are more earthy oranges and are a welcome addition to the 104 range."
Trudi Doherty
"Harvest is slightly lighter than CiM's Phoenix with a blush of pumpkin. The glass is quite firm which nicely lends to sculptural projects. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." Read more at Heather's blog.
