Custom Fused Glass Spoon Rests

Custom Fused Glass Spoon Rests

As I’ve mentioned recently I’ve had a lot of custom fused glass orders. Here is another custom fused glass order I finished recently.           I really like these spoon-rests. I made 12 fused glass spoon-rests for a great customer of mine.           It was not as easy as it sounds though. Some were too large to fit the stand and some were too small.           Some totally messed up. The one on the left can’t be used but the ones on the right look...

Fused Glass Flower Hangers

I’ve blogged about my fused glass flower pockets before.           This time I thought I’d make some fused glass flower hangers, which instead of sitting they hang. The first fused glass hanging pocket, is a triangle. I fused some vitrigraph on top and used stainless steel chain to hang it. The second picture is what it would look like with flowers.           Here are two more fused glass hanging pockets. Basically I can make them in any shape and color.        ...

Fused Glass Mantel Sconces

In April of 2017 I did an entire newsletter on Creative Paradise’s molds. I love their creative paradise’s texture molds. I used some different colors in my fused glass mantle sconces. This first one is iridized white, lady in the woods. She’s beautiful and she looks amazing with the light behind her.           This fused glass mantle sconce is a beautiful light green with gold dragonflies. With the light behind it, it looks even more amazing.             The next mantle...

Custom Fused Glass Mushrooms

Last month I receive a request to make some purple fused glass mushrooms for a great customer of mine. I made these with a screen-melt technique, which is one of my favorite techniques. This first picture is trying out the recycled glass bottoms. I like them, but I thought sandblasting them would be nicer.           So the next two pictures are of the mushroom tops on sandblasted recycled glass bottoms.           I wanted to see them lit up so I put a push light underneath and aren’t...

Fused Glass Wind Chimes

Fused Glass Wind Chimes

It’s spring time so I made some pretty fused glass wind chimes. I made them with brass chain, stainless steel chain and copper wire.  I think they are all pretty cool I even took some to my store in Denver.                 This fused glass piece is a bit different. I made the light house on a textured mold then instead of having 3 chimes I just have one, but it’s a dolphin. I think it’s beautiful. It can hang inside or outside.         These next few are not wind...

Several Production Fused Glass orders

In addition, to the large fused glass production order I’ll talk about in this month’s newsletter “Did You Know” over the last three months I had several other production orders. The first one was soap dishes for a hotel in California. They have ordered from me several times and I really love the color of these soap dishes. Below is a picture of the glass for the soap dishes on the molds ready for their slump firing.           Here is another order of soap dishes for a hotel in Arizona. The...

Fused Glass Presents for Madi

Fused Glass Presents for Madi

In my DYK for March’s Fused Glass Newsletter I focused on my class with Laurie Spray. My second fused glass project was a present for my daughter. It was supposed to be for her 19th birthday; but I couldn’t help giving it to her as soon as I got home.  She liked it, especially when I explained each section of it.           In addition, to the piece I made for Madi I bought a special fused glass picture from Laurie. Laurie painted it and it’s a beautiful piece. I’ve mentioned before how I like...

A myriad of fused glass techniques

Each time I fire my kiln I try to put extra little fused glass pieces in the kiln so I have a full kiln. I thought I’d show you some. This first one is a refire of a beautiful piece with a decal I love the glass as well as the decal. It was too big for a night light so I slumped it and now it’s a tea caddy, spoon rest, soap dish, or trinket dish.           This one is a fused glass dish I made by adding 2 triangles of glass. It’s such a pretty glue. I also made a dish with the two triangle but I...

Which do you like best?

February’s Fresh From the Kiln I made a fused glass Spirit Tablet with a feather. I liked it so much that I made another one. The problem is I can’t decide which fused glass piece to put in the middle. They are all made of glass and added gold. The seahorse, according to what is my spirit animal a seahorse as a power animal provides “safe guidance through rough emotional waters”.           I also like these two shells, the first is auger and the second one is a cockle shell. The auger stands...

Mosaic with a friend

In February I took a glass mosaic class at Full Spectrum in Colorado Springs. This month I decided I’d take another glass mosaic class and this time I bought a friend. Last time it was just tempered glass. This one actually included porcelain. Lela and I had a great time.                     Here is a picture of my piece right after I finished making it. The glue has to dry then I grout.           Here it is grouted. I think I should have waited another week...
