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...

Christmas in July – Candles

Posted by on Jul 24, 2017 in Art, Blog, custom, dish, fused glass, handmade, Holiday, light | 0 comments

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...
