31  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Saving a project - an experiment that failed on: February 16, 2014 07:41:19 PM
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.

37  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: A story of 10 penguins on: November 06, 2013 07:15:34 AM
"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.
38  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / A story of 10 penguins on: November 05, 2013 12:06:05 PM
A while ago I was asked to make a large Penguin Suncatcher for auction to support the running costs of an online live trivia game site and 10 smaller ones as fixed price items. So, we borrowed some time at our local glass shop and cut out the penguins. I made the large one which was duly auctioned and just two of the smaller ones as take up seemed to be very slow. Actually, none of the smaller ones were sold at all! So I was left with them to use in some way myself: the two that I had already made were trimmed from the suncatchers (which had the site name on it) and became fridge magnets; three more became "The Three Wise Penguins" and the last five went into "Beware of Penguins Bearing Gifts".
