Fused Glass Bears Displayed

A few months back I asked my good friend Tracy to cut bears out of special reactive glass (petrified wood and robin’s egg blue) for me. She cut 4 bears out and I fired them. They turned out magnificently. Here they are – aren’t they stunning? I have been struggling […]

Happy 4th of July

As those who follow me know, I am a retired Air Force Veteran. I love the our National Anthem, the American flag, and of course America. So I thought I’d make pieces of fused glass artwork with my own screens (more to come in the July’s DyK) a few to […]

Back in 2019, I wrote a post about this great couple that told me my buddha’s aren’t buddha’s (male) but Kwan Yin / Quan Yin – Goddess of Compassion. I made a few more – I never get tired of these beautiful pieces. I’d love to know which is your […]

Fused Glass, Fixed with Gold

Fused Glass, Fixed with Gold

My Mom’s Gift

My Mom’s Gift

Last Month I wrote a post about a gift I made for my mom for Mother’s Day. When I shipped it to my sister so she could give it to my mom it was in 4 different pieces. I wrapped it really good, so I was devastated, by the loss. […]
