As I mentioned this month I’m going to focus my blogs on fused glass (Recycled glass) webinars by Jodi McRaney Rusho from Glass with a Past (on Curious Mondo). I’ve blogged about her basic bottle glass fusing webinar and Advanced Bottle Glass Fusing webinar so the next two will focus on Jodi’s garden art webinar.
It’s so difficult to say which webinar is my favorite of Jodi’s recycled glass webinars, but I do love her garden art webinar. So many cool projects that just manipulated my time this month. Again this will be two blogs.
In the recycled glass garden art webinar Jodi taught so many cool projects. One of the fused glass projects that I just went crazy over is Jodi’s spinners. I made 3 different shapes.
The first was the fish – love this one, I made 3 and I love them all. I learned a lot from each one but the bottom line is it’s a great technique and doesn’t have to be garden art, I have all 3 hanging in my house right now. Clearly I’ll be keeping one but I haven’t decided which one.
I also made a triangle (kind of looks like a tree) and a circle the key is the shape has to symmetric.
Another of my favorite projects she thought was the character chimes, I love this one and will continue to make more of these. It’s not as easy as you think, but I think the possibilities is limitless. So far I’ve made a boy & a girl (sorry kept to the standard colors pink & purple for the girl).
Jodi also taught us more fuse and fold animals some that stand but some that can sit on poles for the garden. Again the possibilities are endless and hopefully now you can see why I’ve been so late on all my blogs and why I wasn’t able to do all the projects Jodi taught e.g., house numbers!
Below is my hummingbirds they look pretty good and I’m pretty happy with them.
