Just thought I’d show some of my finished fused glass pieces.  Because I was TDY (military term for Business trip) this month and working on production pieces I didn’t have as much time to experiment and play as much as I normally like to do.  But I did get to finish some fused glass pieces. First I finished some fused glass pendants. Hearts, Holey pendants, some with decals, some dichroic, etc.                  ...

Recently I took an online webinar about donuts. It was a fascinating class and I love the technique. I thought I’d show you a couple. There are many ways to make fused glass donuts but this is a unique way and I like them very much.           Sadly you can’t truly see how amazing these are, they are large statement pieces. Some have transparent sections that make them even more versatile.           In making the...

During one of my shows last year I was asked if I could make pocket crosses. I wasn’t sure what she mean and she explained they are just to keep them in your pocket without a bail. It reminded me of worry stones. When I was stationed in Turkey, worry stones were very common. In fact I’ve made a few worry stones. I’ll post pictures next time I come across them. But I decided to make some pocket crosses.  There are a couple ways to make fused glass crosses:...

While I was making my vitrigraph pieces I came across some glass that I wanted to refuse. Some were donut pendants that I found too large. So I decided to cut them down.  I really like them now. They were casted fused glass donuts and I cut off the sides, eventually I plan on making the sides into earrings but we’ll see. I have such a hard time remembering to make earrings and pendant sets.         I also found a large piece of screen-melt that...

I love reading but I don’t get a chance to read very much, so I listen to audio books in my studio. It really lets me focus on my glass and not think about other things. I read an amazing book the other day, by Jodi Pichoult, “Leaving Time”. It was about Elephants. It was such an fabulous book. I like books that teach me something as well as entertain me. What I really liked about this book is the research about elephants was real and she even gave her...
