Fused Glass – Garden Stakes

Last year I focus on revisiting some of my favorite techniques from various classes, ebooks, and webinars. This year I want to focus on some fused glass techniques and ideas showcased in my glass magazine.

I am a warm weather girl and we’ve had a few snow days and I must tell you I am ready for spring. Earlier this month I did a blog about my fused glass flowers, of course I love my mushrooms. This month I’m focusing on awesome fused glass garden stakes. There are several types and of course my favorite part is that the little garden creatures are adhered to knifes.

First is my fused glass turtle, I really think he is cute. I like using the knifes because they are a great way to recycle silverware as well.  The fused slug is attached to a copper wire. Again perfect for the garden or indoor plant decorations.







I also made two different fused glass birds. I like them because they can be made with various colors.






I also made fused glass bees and a lady bug. These are all handcut and each knife is different, when I showed them to my husband, he said I hope you didn’t use our knives.






In addition, I made fused glass butterflies and dragonflies.







All of my fused glass garden stakes, were so much fun to make.  I love using the knifes and the copper, next time I think I may try forks. I really love these adorable fused glass garden stakes I hope you like them too.

I’m looking forward to trying new techniques and product from my glass magazine, because I get 4 magazines a year with numerous options in every magazine.
