For discussion of processes related to using Bullseye glass, including kilnforming and kilncasting, torchwork, blowing and stained glass.
You might try adding more stringer and pulled cane or vitreograph stringers to increase the depth and frequency of the linear marks that you like in the irid. That is unless you have cased the irid and the irid is too far in to be moved by stringer ect. melting into the surface.
I ran some test pieces a few years ago to determine how it would work. I didn't like the effect of firing face up and went with firing face down. I can't find any pics of it on a solid but here is one on striker purple. And although this was a lesson in making sure you do a good bubble squeeze, it gave it a pretty cool effect...

Thanks for the picture Kathy. I will have to fire with the Chopstix side down.
I really just bought the wrong glass now that I see the results. BE 004102-0031 would have given a more interesting result.
