Fused Glass Pocket Mirror

I love the look of fused glass with mirrors. Here are a few of the home decor mirrors I’ve made. Some are glass and mirror alone, some are a mix of mirror, glass, and wood (including mosaic pieces).

I’ve also made a few fused glass handheld mirrors. Here are the two I’ve made so far. The full one is a bit tough to make but I like it.

I had the need for a pocket mirror for work and decided to make a few. As normal for me I didn’t just make one I went nuts and made several. Here are some of my round fused glass pocket mirrors. I only have 3 round mirror blanks and made 8 glass inserts. I used several different fused glass techniques. The bottom 2 pictures are some of my circles that were too small, and you can see the metal around the fused glass circle on the right. Please tell me which one is your favorite.

Here are some of my squarish fused glass pocket mirrors. I really went overboard on these — 10 so far. I made 3 different types some are 1 layers of glass, some are full fused 2 layers, and a couple are 2 layers but only tacked fused. BTW don’t you love the petrified wood? LOVE IT!

The left picture shows 1 of each of the different styles, the top one is full fused 2 layers, the blue/purple one is a single layer of glass, and the red one is 2 layers but tacked fused. The second picture are the various glass inserts I created. Some are simple and I may screen print on them, but maybe not. Simple is elegant right. Which one is your favorite? And should I screen print? Decisions, Decisions!

So, the most difficult decision is which one will I keep for myself? You’ll have to wait and see.
