A good home – for Fused Glass Art

A good home – for Fused Glass Art

Posted by on Sep 30, 2017 in accessories, Art, Blog, custom, dish, fused glass, handmade | 0 comments

I love all my fused glass pieces. Each piece I make is special and has a special place in my heart. But every now and then there is an extra special piece. I made such a piece and at the Holly Berry Art Show it went to a good home. So much work went into this piece and the price reflected it. In this day in age of buying production work some people don’t see the value of true art. But some special people do. I met some wonderful people at Holly Berry Art Show a few...

More Fused Glass Stars

More Fused Glass Stars

In July, I made a lot of Fused glass stars and after taking Jodi’s class the first week in August I made even more. I’m not sure which are my favorites. I like the simple 5 point stars because they can be made in any color and typically take 1 firing.  The 6 pointed stars are nice too. I tried it with 2 colors too.           Jodi also taught chubby stars, some standing some hanging. I’m still working on getting my standing stars to...

During my August show, one of my long time customers had a request. She wanted some of my fused glass earrings changed from posts and dangles to clip-on earrings.  So I did it. I based it on whether the earrings were posts or dangles. If they were posts I put them on a finding that had a pad. If they were dangles I put them on a clip-on finding that was made for dangles. So about 1/2 were dangles and 1/2 were posts, now she has fused glass earrings that she can wear.  ...

          Fused Glass Crosses, I’ve made some new fused glass crosses for the holiday season. I thought the green one was a bit simple so I added a dichroic dot.  I’ve also fused in high fire wire so the crosses can be hung. I have even more fused glass cross molds and hope to have a few more available for Christmas. As you can see I like blue and green. Let me know if you would like another color of cross. If you would like to see more...

          OMG I have had a crazy emotional month. First, my daughter moved into her college dorm. It’s difficult for me I miss her terribly.  I’m so happy for her, this is an exciting time of her life. Since I miss her so much I thought I’d put her picture on some glass. I had made the little girl earlier in the month, but I made a little standing picture and a coffee stirer. It they are great for my office.      ...

During my show at Woodland Park two of my new fused glass pieces went to good homes. Both pieces we’re techniques I learned from Jodi “Glass with a Past”. I covered her projects in May’s Fused Glass Newsletter. My first fused glass piece was my spinner fish. I’m sure you are wondering what happened to my other two fish. One is in Denver at the shop I show at and the other one is hanging in my Studio. It’s too pretty to sell and I like...

Last month I created a myriad of fused glass projects for the holiday seasons. Two that I finished recently are beautiful so I want to show them off. The first one is a very larch casted fused glass cross. It’s large and thick glass. I fused a wire loop in so it’s self hanging as well.           This next fused glass dish is a turtle shell texture. It’s so much prettier than the picture shows. It’s iridized and has so much...

July’s fused glass newsletter focuses on holiday fused glass in preparation for my glass shows.  So for this fused glass blog I thought make a couple Christmas sconces. I made two candle sconces, ironically the design is candles.             One slumped on a smaller mold so it’s a tighter curve than the standard sconce.           In addition to my fused glass Christmas candle sconces I made a beautiful leaf...
