Fresh From the Kiln – June

Earlier this month I wrote a review on two eBooks by Paul Tarlow “Waste Not! Fused Glass Projects Using Scrap Glass 1 & 2”. As I mentioned in that review when fused glass artists create glass pieces whether it’s jewelry or art pieces we have a lot of what we call “scrap” or leftover glass. Sometimes it’s difficult to know what to do with the scrap glass. But with the 10 different fused glass projects between the two eBooks there were several choices. Again a great eBook.

For June’s fresh from the kiln – I chose the “crushed cutout project” from the second eBook.

I must say I did it the hard ways cutting up the glass with my cutters at first rather than using a hammer at first then I got a hammer and it got much easier. I chose this one because I thought it was interesting and I’ve been wanting to try it for quite sometime.

I made some mistakes, but I’m happy I made it and I’ll definitely try this technique again.






I hope you like it and as I mentioned in the review unless the artist told you it was made of scrap glass you wouldn’t know.
