I have been busy, busy making fused glass photo stands. I love these matter of fact I’m keeping one. It’s light purple and dichroic (both expensive glass) so instead of trying to explain why it’s twice as expensive as the others. I really love it.
I have 7 half circle fused glass photo stands in various colors and I made 9 wavy ones. I love them because you can put various shapes of pictures in them and more than one. I’ll be putting some on my sites, I’ll be giving a few to my store in Denver, and of course have some for my shows.
I’m sure you are wondering how hard can it be to make these fused glass photo stands. Again it’s more difficult than you think. You have to get the firing schedule just right, if it’s too low the photo stand may not be fully fused, if you don’t ramp up slow enough photo stand could break, if you don’t anneal properly it can break, if you don’t place the fiber right you can close it or leave it open in the wrong place. Plus it has to be fired at least twice, if you are adding a decal or design that could be another firing. Plus color match, I tend to like clear iridized with another color but as you can see I’ve combined colors as well.
Bottom line is these fused glass photo stands are easy to use and beautiful for any room in your house.
I’ll probably put a couple of these on my website Elegant Fused Glass by Karen and I’ll save a few for my shows.
