Bases for Fused Glass Art

Sometimes when I make a fused glass art piece it just needs a little something extra. Whether it’s a bowl that doesn’t have a flat bottom. (I talked about this earlier this month.) Adding a base really makes the difference.

In addition to adding a removable base for bowls vase look different when a base is added. This is a large vase and therefore it’s a bit top heavy (left picture), the middle picture shows the vase with a base (permanent) and makes it more balanced. The picture on the right shows another vase that I’ll probably add a base to. The bottom two pictures are the first vase I added a base to because it was really fragile.

In addition sometimes when I make a mantle sconce, whether a wave or rounded the artwork is still not quite right. For example I made a menorah and of course my patriotic wave, just need a little more. By adding bases they look completely different. I love them. Let me know what you think.

Some bases are simple, like the above. But the base below is much more complicated but I love it and think it really adds to my winter aspens.

Below are my drop out vases that I love to add removable bases for display. I like them because you can adjust the vase.

I look forward to hearing what y’all think about adding stands to my fused glass. Do you like the permanent bases or the stands?
