Hidden Figures Class with Cathy Claycomb

In addition to the Alcohol Ink class with Cathy I also got to take Hidden Images 3-D with Cathy  Claycomb.  Like the first class this class wasn’t a fused glass class either. Again we used Kokomo glass, it’s so pretty, I wish it could be fused without losing it’s beauty.

The first time I saw Cathy’s work was her Hidden Images. Her work is incredible and when she showed us her presentation she has so many more classes I’d like to take with her.






I chose to make whales. I just love it. But it was so much work, and at times I was like this is just to frustrating. But when I finished it I was like OMG I love it. I like this technique and can’t wait to do another project. That being said, it probably won’t be so detailed and large. Did I say this took a lot of time! and Space! It’s copper overlay and I got to use solder for only the second time in my life. It’s not as easy as it looks, especially for someone who isn’t a stained glass artist.

I love whales, turtles and stingrays.





I just wish you could see this piece in person. The camera just does not do it justice.








I think my next one will be for Colorado, but it takes a lot of time and space. I also want to be able to make some nice stands for it.  I can’t wait to put this one up in my living room. I just love it.
