Fused glass

Post by gingerjo on Sun 17 Mar 2013 - 22:33

this is what I made yesterday, we were a bit limited with materials and were supposed to be making one square piece of glass, but I didn't want too,lol. So I asked her if I could make some pendants and hangings and a lot of others did the same. We used mostly copper wire and foils with some glass thrown in too. I made an owl for rosie.

Before firing, hope they look ok once done Rolling Eyes

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Hmmmm, Bob got them today and I am so disappointed. Pendants are fine, but hangings look like they have been knocked or slipped in firing!!

They look great, Jo - such a pity about the hanging decorations and the earrings. Have you asked the tutor yet about what could have happened?

They are super, there's just one that's a bit squiffy to my untrained eye, I'm sure you'll be able to do something with it.
Will you be having another go?
