Busy Fusing Beautiful Functional Art

I’ve had a fun fusing month, not only am I doing another commercial order, I’ve also been busy making some fused glass functional art.  I like to create fused glass pieces that are both beautiful and functional.

This first fused glass platter is quite large 13″ x 6″.  I really like it because it reminds me of clouds. It’s has streaky white glass on both sides of a lovely transparent blue. This would be perfect for bread, candles, or anything you can think of. A lovely gift for you, your Mom, or as a housewarming gift.

These two pictures show groups of fused glass dishes that are relatively small; the ones to the left are approx 3×5 inches and the ones to the right are approx 5″ inches square.  Both types of dishes can be used for soap dishes, ring holders, tea bag holders, spoon rests, candle, or again anything your heart desires. They are really beautiful several of them are iridized which really give them some sparkle – the pictures just don’t do them justice. Pair them with a beautiful soap, tea, candle, etc., and they make perfect gifts!

The fused glass dishes below are bigger (approx 9 3/4 x 5 1/4) than you’d guess. They are called sushi dishes (not that they are only for sushi). You can use them for anything i.e., vanity dish, candles, candy, etc. The red and green ones can even be made into clocks. I love the colors and the specialty glass I used to make these pieces.

This last Fused Glass dish is also large, 10″ square and a perfect centerpiece, I love this fused glass plate so much I almost didn’t make it into a dish.  All of these make wonderful gifts for anyone who loves unique one of a kind art!
