Fused Glass Stringer Art

A glass stringer is a straight tiny (1mm or 2mm) rods. I’ve never really used them before, because I prefer organic shapes and sizes of vitrigraph. However, I just watched a class (curious mondo) on how to use stringers and I must say I was inspired. I pulled out some stringers I had and wow I had a lot (mostly COE 90). Here is a picture of my stringer and rod stash.

Something you may have figured out about me is I tend to go a bit overboard when it comes to glass. My stringer journey is no different. I’m not a liner person, but I have to admit I like how these turned out. Here are just a few pieces I created with just the stringers.

I also used some of the stringer (part sheets) and incorporated them with other glass. I really love the effect.

I also made fused glass cabochons for jewelry with the stringer part sheets. It’s funny I like more organic but I think these are pretty cool. I’m going to drill holes in the ones on the right. The cabochons on the left I put dichroic glass underneath.

I also made some fused glass art with the stringers. I really like them. The little ones on the right can be candle shields, night lights, or decorations. So very cool.

Let me know what you think of my fused glass stringer artwork. I can’t decide which one is my favorite. Which is your favorite?
