Fused Glass Castings

I love molds. There are different types of molds including casting molds. A casting mold used to make dimensional pieces in various shapes. This month I thought I’d show off some of my new molds. There is a variety but mainly artwork, some small and some large. Here are some of my new fused glass pieces. They are created by adding layers of glass. Typically started with powder or fine glass, but they can also have bigger pieces of glass called coarse. The pictures below are some of them in my large kiln before firing and after firing.

Below are some of my new garden stakes. I like that they are all glass! I think they are wonderful!

This one is an icicle. I love unicorns but I think I’ll add some gold to this one. to highlight the eye and horn. I have other icicles but haven’t really had much luck with them.

I’ve shown some of my big flowers but I have flowers from all sizes. The top row are small. They are just flowers but I also have a mold of just the stake and they look great on the stake but I have to glue them to the stake. The single sunflower is medium size. The bottom row are tiny flowers. I put a small one next to the tiny ones so you can see the difference.

Here is a picture of just the glass stakes, you can see how the flowers and even a dragonfly fits perfectly on them.

I think I’ll also add some gold to my seahorse and starfish. I like the moons but again I think I’ll add some goad to them to highlight the faces.

I have a couple of feather molds the ones on the left have built in holes for either necklaces or ornaments. The ones on the right don’t have holes so I don’t know what I’ll do with them.

I also have a big dragonfly mold, it’s the same size as my screen printed dragonflies but it’s much heavier.

I’m curious which ones are your favorite. I like making the casted pieces but they take a bit of work. I also have to figure out what to so with some of them. When I figure that out I’ll let you know.
