First I painted and fired the shape and then added the glass dots that I tack fused onto the shape.

They are "waterslide" decals that I print on my HP Laserjet P1600. The documentation with the paper says that any HP Laser printer that is only capable of printing black and white (it must not be capable of printing in colour) will work. You can use almost any image as long as it is a high contrast one. For instance, I made these for our neighbours' 50th Wedding Anniversary recently. This is a photograph from their wedding! I put it onto a couple of coasters, a pendant and a pair of cufflinks.

The second picture just shows how the cut pieces were laid on the background - at this point they are separate. The third picture shows what happened when I fused the pieces together and why I needed to "save" it.

I made some mica sheets with Flexi glass and used an electric die cutter to cut out these images


I then made a background from "tops and tails" and fired it face down to make a flatter surface to a tack fuse.

After capping it, I fired it to a full fuse after adding my images.


It did not work: I think the mica was too thin and once the binder burned off, as I assume it does, the thinnest areas virtually disappeared. So I set about saving it. I had some steel blue and cut out the same images in the glass and this is the result after I tack fused.

This one has 4 little tiles about 4cm square

This one also has 4 little tiles about the same size. They were inspired by my chickens!

The last one is one of a pair that I made, the tiles for this are a little bigger

Each of them have been attached to a piece of reclaimed wood from a split stake that has been slightly sanded. They have then been drilled or have a hanger attached at the back (depending on how thick the piece of wood turned out to be). so that they can be displayed.

From the top: These are individually cut piano notes. The space between each one also has a cut piece (I am now using stringers for the most recent ones that I have made). Below the musical notes and text says: Never be flat, sometimes be sharp, always be natural

Middle one: these are beach huts that are a common site on UK beaches - they are usually owned and, sometimes, rented. They are used for people who want a base to stay for the day (often they don't have any electricity) on the beach.

Bottom one: This was inspired by an idea in the Delphi glass Holiday e-book. A place in the UK does custom printing for ceramics and I ordered a sheet with many different images on including this one.

All three were slumped on a mould like this:

This allows them to stand alone on a shelf.

This one has a decal on it inspired by the project in the Delphi glass ebook.

"Penguins bearing gifts took a long time. First of all I had the slumping mould on order for an age, although I had already made the piece as soon as I knew they were not going to be sold. The mould arrived and then I found that it was one that needed to be elevated on kiln posts for use. My Skutt Firebox 14 comes with 3 kiln posts not the 4 I would need for this, so there was another delay.After slumping into the wave I then did the etching of the snowflakes on the back and on the front to give some extra dimension to the piece.
