As I mentioned in my fused glass votives blogTulip – Exquisite gifts / fantastic finds (the store that show cases my fused glass in Denver) also asked me to make some fused glass candle shields.

I like fused candle shields because I can make them any color, shape or size. These are medium sized fused glass candle shields and make simple little candles look elegant.

Some have texture: for example these have frit (small pieces of glass) fused on the front, some have texture on the back, some are smooth but have lots of depth.

I think of candle shields as the little sister to the mantle sconces.

The key thing to remember about fused glass candle shields and mantel sconces is they can come in any color and various sizes.

The blue and yellow are screenmelts and I’ll talk about the process in February’s DYK. I like them because they have so much depth and color also because they’re square verses round.  The red and blue is one of my favorites because I love clocks and gears but what you can’t see is it’s also iridized. Very cool.

This fused glass candle shield is really beautiful because it’s all iridized layered.

The one on the left has glass confetti of various colors and the one on the right has beautiful transparent strips of glass along with frit.
