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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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.        ...

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...

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...

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...

I’m so in spring mode, albeit here in Colorado we don’t always have a spring. Today was beautiful, but tomorrow it could be a blizzard.  Anyway, I just wrote a blog about my fused glass mushrooms and last month I wrote about fused glass garden stakes. So while I was making my mushrooms and the garden stakes I came a cross some fused glass butterflies I made a while back and decided I should make them into night lights similar to my fused glass mushrooms. This...

I’ve blogged about my fused glass mushrooms before but I just love them and thought I’d make some more. Some have clear bottoms, some have sandblasted bottoms and I made one with a green bottom. The bottoms are all recycled bottles. They come with fairy lights to make little night lights. So many different colors and techniques.                     I also made some little bases, it reminds me of the old time...

Another Trip to Rhode Island

I just got back from another trip to Rhode Island. What this means is I haven’t had a chance to work on much glass. However, anywhere I go I look for glass. As I mentioned in my last blog about Rhode Island, they have some amazing glass in the hotel. My favorite is the chandlers made from recycled bottles.             I also was lucky enough to find two glass stores. One actually lets you do simple blown glass ornaments which I so wanted...

As I mentioned in my last blog I have been finishing up some fused glass pieces. I also finished a lot of fused glass snaps.

I love the big ones, they are so much fun to wear.           I also use mad some snaps with with concrete. Now these snap into jewelry, but the glass is set...

Just thought I’d show some of my finished fused glass pieces.  Because I was TDY (military term for Business trip) this month and working on production pieces I didn’t have as much time to experiment and play as much as I normally like to do.  But I did get to finish some fused glass pieces. First I finished some fused glass pendants. Hearts, Holey pendants, some with decals, some dichroic, etc.                  ...

Last year I focus on revisiting some of my favorite techniques from various classes, ebooks, and webinars. This year I want to focus on some fused glass techniques and ideas showcased in my glass magazine. I am a warm weather girl and we’ve had a few snow days and I must tell you I am ready for spring. Earlier this month I did a blog about my fused glass flowers, of course I love my mushrooms. This month I’m focusing on awesome fused glass garden stakes. There...
