Organic Fused Glass – Coral or Lace?

There are several funny parts to this story about these fused glass pieces. First I made a dish years ago and used it as a napkin holder. And I loved it so much that I gave it to Sky for her new apartment. Below are pictures of it, in it’s new home.

Since I lost my napkin holder, I wanted to make me another one. I decided to use a mold I’ve never used before and I love it. It’s sitting on my table and I just freaking love it! Look at the iridized. It’s so fun and so pretty and I just can’t stop looking at it.

The second funny thing about this is Sharon from Tulip Gifts and Cards brought a sconce back to me because it had a small crack in it, so I put it up in our sitting room as a reminder to fix it. Well every time I walked into the room it caught my eye and even Dan was like wow that’s cool so I decided to make another one.

I never make just one, I made 3 fused glass sconces. Then I thought about what shapes would be best, obvious a sconce. I wish the pictures showed just how beautiful these pieces are. I really love them all. They all have iridized and they all have texture.

I also tried to make a wave, actually I made 2 waves but they didn’t want to stand, so I made it into a sconce. The last one I liked so much I decided to hang it. The interesting thing is because it has a shape it picks up the light more. But it doesn’t have to hang it can lay but doesn’t want to stand.

Lastly I don’t know what to call them they started out as “coral”, I’ve seen other places call something similar as lacy, but to me they are so much more than either. So I asked my husband what I should call them and he’s like I don’t know but they’re pretty. Then I asked Lela, and she said I don’t know but they are beautiful. So now I ask you what should I name this technique? Also I love the different shapes, which is your Favorite?
