1  A new addiction--glassblowing in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by CrazyEyeGlass on: February 22, 2014 01:39:25 PM
My husband and I took his daughter to a local glassblowing studio for her birthday. She made a stemless wineglass with dark green and yellow. I made a starfish paperweight with apple green and turquoise.





Enjoy!

2  Tiger mosaic in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by CrazyEyeGlass on: November 28, 2013 08:29:14 AM
I thought I had posted this earlier, but I can't find it on this board! A customer asked me to make a tiger for her and this is what I came up with. I agonized for a long time over what background to use.





Enjoy!

3  Elephant mosaic in fused glass in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by CrazyEyeGlass on: November 26, 2013 04:41:33 PM
I made this for a friend because we have a shared respect and admiration for elephants. It measures approximately 11 inches square. The background is aventurine blue, but it's actually more of a very pretty blue green.

5  Rescued bowl - Red Menace no more! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by CrazyEyeGlass on: September 19, 2013 02:29:44 PM
This bowl was uh... problematic. The glass originally started out as a plate made of beautiful shades of ambers and oranges; when fired, they struck scarlet and red. I dubbed this plate "the red menace" and put it on my shelf of despair. After a while, I made my own frit piston thingy, crushed the glass up, and cast it in a Colour de Verre flower mold. Everything was fine until I slumped it in the cone shaped bowl mold and it picked up some kiln wash. I tried everything to get the kiln wash off, to no avail. I then discovered the magic of LimeAway for removing kiln wash, then I etched the entire surface with etching creme cuz it wasn't shiny enough, and finally put it back in the mold. (Okay, there's more to this story: for some reason this mold decided to stop accepting kiln wash, so I broke down and bought MR-97. Miracle!) All in all, after many trials and tribulations, I think it turned out pretty well!

7  Fused Glass Miniatures in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by CrazyEyeGlass on: July 20, 2013 07:32:15 AM
I've been doing a lot of these recently. Guess I've developed a sudden fascination with streaky glass! The images are painted with Glassline paints (which are now marketed as Glassline pens). Enjoy!

10  Kiln club challenge #2 in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by CrazyEyeGlass on: June 16, 2013 12:37:16 PM
Today my kiln club met and I brought the little sculpture I had made (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424159.0#axzz2WPRT2SBG) as well as another piece I made yesterday and pulled out of the kiln this morning. The challenge was to use scrap glass and I made this small piece out of the rolled end of glass sheets:







It measures 3 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. I have lots of rolled ends leftover but mostly greens. Maybe I'll make a larger one to hang horizontally. Enjoy!
