12  Glass Drape Vase EEK! I've been gone sooo long! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: July 26, 2011 08:18:13 AM


This is a fused glass drape vase.  I'm on a kick!  I think I've made 10 of these now! LOL!  

First, I cut and design the glass, and fuse that....then i drape this over a mold, and let the heat of the kiln do it's work.  The trick here is in STOPPING the fusing process at exactly the right time.

15  The Swirls. A pretty little pendant in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: January 21, 2009 09:05:44 AM


Time to start thinking SPRING!  I love to create with happy, bright, springtime colors.  It's sooo cold and cloudy in Michigan lately, but this brightened my day, and I hope it brightens yours, too!

Here's the whole gang...I got a little carried away:



And here's my VERY favorite one ( it has a purple hue to it, a Purple Heart for a Courageous Girl )


...but I really like this one, too:


I have this "thing" about transparent glass...love it.

Whatcha think?

18  Here's something NEW! Fused Glass Drop Ring Vase in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: December 16, 2008 06:32:27 PM
How cool is this?  This vase is made by actually heating a circular piece of fused glass over a mold, and allowing the center to drop out!  It can be done several ways, but I chose to allow the glass to hit the bottom of my kiln.  This vase can stand alone, or be suspended in a stand!  Cool, huh?

I took this to a gallery downtown, and it sold the same day!  WOOT!

20  Here's a Double Heart Cuff Bracelet...WOOT! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TickleTickle on: September 30, 2008 05:42:38 AM
I wish *I* could take credit for these, but, alas, it's my dear hubby who has the strength to bend these tines, and make them do whatever he wants them to do.

As for me?  I'll stick to melting glass!   Anyhow...how do you like this one?  It's made with 2 vintage forks!





The best part about these?  They're recycled.  We're going to really concentrate on giving back to Mother Earth with our art.
