21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Suspensions! These *were* forks...now they're jewels! on: September 28, 2008 01:59:21 PM

22  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Recycled Wine Bottle Cheese Trays! GO GREEN! ( 3 pics ) on: September 08, 2008 09:02:01 AM
Here's a fun fusing project!  I'm so tickled with these!  The most fun was embellishing the necks of the bottles.

I used a verrrrrrrry conservative fusing schedule on these.  Why? Because the COE of this glass is unknown, so, it's very hard to predict what these buggers will do in the kiln!  I love 'em!  YAY!

Here's the verrrrrrry light green one:


...and here's a less "artsy-fartsy" shot of it ( I LOVE THIS ONE!)...


[/b]...and here's a prettttty dark green one that I made, too![/b]




Well!  Tell me what you think!  I love all of your thoughts and comments!

hi hi hi!  'Tis been a busy summer for me!  But I *HAD* to show you these new goodies!  Which one is your fave!??!

CANDY GIRL


MYSTIC SWIRLS


VIOLET GARDENS


Hope you like 'em!  These were all created using the same technique, an Aperture Pour, and an open-kiln raking technique....glass is melted in a vessel, and allowed to drip, forming these swirling designs!  Smiley

24  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / New "Transparencies" Pieces on: June 25, 2008 09:35:19 AM
...made of clear glass and frit.  A groove was ground (VERY CAREFULLY!) around the edge, then, the pieces were wire wrapped.

It's not possible to glue a bail...they show through from the back and look awful!

Whatcha think?

I made these pendants for a teacher friend of mine, who is going to give one to each of her colleagues, after, what sounds like .... ONE LONG SCHOOL YEAR!

I hope they all like them...I have such respect and gratitude for teachers.

28  UNITED STATES / Michigan / CALL FOR ARTISTS IN THE MID MICHIGAN AREA! on: April 16, 2008 07:07:47 AM
A new Farmer's Market in Mid Michigan will be opening up in Mid July.

We're taking applications now, and spaces are quickly filling up!

Looking for unique artists who would love to be a part of a brand new endeavor.  Art must be handmade by the artisan, NO RESELLING whatsoever.  (Lia Sophia, Candlelite Candles)...you get the drift.

Market Days are Thursdays and Saturdays. I will also be holding special Art and Crafts events throughout the year, concentrating on the Holiday Season. 

Please contact me...Karen (FireChickTick) for more details.

30  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Happy SPRING! Here's some new pendants from my kiln! ( 3 pics ) on: March 26, 2008 03:40:29 PM
I've got it b-a-a-a-a--a-d.  Spring will never get here, it seems.  Michigan got dumped with another foot of snow, which is melting!  It's gotta get here soon!

Here's some newbies from my day of fusing:
