I’ve posted about my fused glass textured pieces before. I just love textured glass. These are my Suns’ The first one is the sun and the moon in iridized amber. It’s huge. Matter of fact, I didn’t think I had a stand that would hold it, but this stand is perfect – I do need to paint it – I’m thinking red, what do ya’ll think?  The middle one is beautiful, I love the texture and the colors. The third one is a 5×5 trinket...

Plus this is related to my DYK. The color around the edges is fused on by painting fiber paper. This is the first fusing after being fired down on the...

Fused Glass Mosaic Tiles is another of Tanya’s techniques she has on her fused glass website. I’ve never really done mosaics but I like this one.  Tanya included 2 fused glass mosaic techniques in the one video. First I made two sets of mosaic using light blue and a rose colored glass. In reality they could stand on their own.           But instead I cut them into squares and put together a new piece.  I love it. So pretty but it does...

I’ve been revisiting fused glass techniques from my class with Patty Gray.  First I want to tell you a kind of funny story. This was one of my favorite fused glass techniques Patty taught us so it was one of the first ones I redid. I made 2 soap dishes. One didn’t slump right so I was going to reslump it.  Then I proceeded to misplace them. I put them in a safe place and now ????  I can’t find them anywhere.  So when I find my fused glass soap dishes and I...
