Fused Glass Flowers

As y’all know I love making fused glass flowers and I’ve been at it again. Of course I have the same problem that I had before. I can’t decide which stamen or center to use and I need your help choosing which looks best. the first set is my orange flower. It’s a streaky opaque glass. It’s really pretty. I like the clear, black iridized, or mauve stamen, but the center is so much more difficult. So many choices.

Then I made an amber fused glass flower. Again I like the clear or mauve stamen. I also made some different types of stamen, what do you think. do you think about the new middles, I like the blue one best. Again the centers are the hardest thing.

My blue fused flower looks great with all of the stamen and middles which makes it even more difficult to chose. I especially like the last two stamen. Which is your favorite?

I also made two purple flowers. I just love purple. All of the centers look great but the stamen I liked for each are below. I wish I could really show you how amazing these flowers really look.

One of my favorites is the rainbow flower. The stamen was easy for this one because of all the colors in the flower I wanted the stamen to be simple but it does have dichroic so it really pops.

Here is a picture of just a few of my stamen and centers. I need to make some more to give myself some even more options. Yes I know I’m just asking for more choices but I like options.

I just love making these fused glass flowers, my next task is to make smaller flowers and vary my stamens. My favorite part of the flowers is they look beautiful sitting or hanging. I’m so thankful to Laurie Spray and teaching me this fun technique.
