Fused Glass Art with Hand-painted Stands

I love making fused glass jewelry, night lights, and other functional fused glass pieces. However, I also love making fused glass art pieces as well. Art is basically something that is beautiful but doesn’t necessarily have a functional use other than esthetics.

Sometimes when I create a fused glass piece instead of  turning it into a bowl or plate or whatever I look at it and see something more, pure beauty.

These two fused glass pieces are examples of glass that I think are so beautiful they go beyond function into pure art.

The red one is a screen-melt, when I took it out of the kiln I saw the sun and it made me think of the African sun. I bought the Elephant stand from a fellow artist then painted it with a paint that has a black and purple tint.  Isn’t it beautiful? I thought it was perfect.











This next fused glass piece is a confetti fused glass flower. Again I bought the vine stand from the same fellow artist.  It’s so beautiful. In fact, it was kind of funny I showed both of them at Rockledge and had the confetti flower in backwards for 1/2 the day. It’s so pretty from both ways! This stand I painted in various shades of green and brown.

I hope you find them as amazing as I do. Art is important and functional, because it makes the world a bit prettier!
