Fused Glass – 1st Crackle dish

I’ve been focusing on fused glass techniques I learned from Tanya. One technique I learned from her was the crackle technique. As you know the father of crackle is Bob Leatherbarrow, however the first time I tried it was with Tanya, she taught it with jewelry then she taught it in the big fused glass bootcamp.

It’s one of my favorite pieces I made in class. I think it’s so amazing. It’s funny thought I started coldworking it too soon and and cracked it. But I just cut it into a piece of jewelry and I love both the dish and the pendant.  BTW, funny story about this piece, when I got it home I was sitting on the couch touching it (it’s got a fabulous texture), and my husband asked – are you playing with your glass? I’m like yes and started chasing my husband and daughter around the house trying to get them to touch it. Both of them were like, that is not normal!! I just laughed. I love it when my glass has texture.








I liked it so much I made another one when I got home. isn’t it beautiful.







Anyway I love this technique so I thought I’d make two new ones. Aren’t they awesome. I still need to slump them, but I love them.








I hope you like these fabulous fused glass pieces as much as I do.
