Fused Glass

Post by Scatty on Sat 12 Jul 2014 - 11:05

This is the second piece that I made, used a pattern and cut the strips of coloured glass. I'm well chuffed with it.
I have it on a stand on the dining room window sill.



This is both the pieces I did, the first is a coaster size piece of light blue glass, some leaves and a pink gerainium flower laid on and clear glass over the top. You can just see how some of the leaves have all burnt away and left a white almost etched look while some other leaves were to thick and have left a carbon image, the pink flower just disolved and left like a traped water look which also spread.
Still they are on this stand together catching the sun.

They are lovely, I like the bi-coloured pieces in the triangular one particularly.

Wow, they're brilliant!

Hoping Santa might send me to Warm Glass in Bristol for a course next year!

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

Wow - the triangle piece is amazing, Alison! You did really well for your first attempt. Would be nice to have that piece let into a window somewhere.

Both lovely pieces of glass, how did you get the shape of a girl in the smaller blue one.

Love the triangle one, I think I need to see the second piece in real life, because it looks like an upside down ghost to me which is not the look you were going for, lol.

Thanks for the comments, glad you all like them.
Billie I guess it does look like a girl in the little one, not ment to have the water type effect in it thats just how the flower went when in the kiln.
Ruth I will turn it around and see if I can see this ghost, LOL I will put them on the flat and take more photos of both of them.
Lynda yes it would look good fixed into a window but for now it will just have to be next to one Clives kiln isnt big enough to do windows other than a small one.
Tina hope you do get to do that you will love it.
