Here are my latest creations.  I was in Connecticut recently and the leaves were just starting to change. I live in Florida and the leaves don't change....at least not much so I was REALLY into the leaves.

Anyway...here they are!

A 6 inch by 6 inch plate on a clear amber background.


A round plate on a yellow background with a diameter of about 8 and 1/4 inches.


I signed up for another round of glass fusing classes so I should have more with this came from! I'm also going to make my sister an entire set of dishes as a wedding present! Her wedding is in June so I have plenty of time!

Thank you!  These were a total mess when it went into the kiln! I just kept piling it on and piling it on. But I wanted them to look like leaves had fallen on the plates.  They turned out MUCH better than I expected.

Oh! These aren't for my sister.  I'm making a set (4 large plates, 4 small plates & a serving platter) in her wedding colors, cobalt and lime. I'm going to do several test plates before I get the right pattern.  My first test is going to have a white, almost completely opaque with some subtle marble effects (all in white) background then add the blue and lime.

Cobalt and lime with white!  What a pretty colorway!  I actually understood that you were making a new set for your sister, but my post was lazily worded... sorry! 

I really like your plates, especially the opaque one. Fused glass is so cool. I think I'll have to find a class in my area to learn how to do it too.

Pinky if you want the leaf look but want the piece to be thinner? Confetti shards are awsome super thin and awesome colors.

PInky, I love your design!  Living in Michigan, we have a lovely fall.  HOWEVER..it leads directly in to the hell that IS Michigan Winter....aak!

So, don't be too jealous! 

Your plates are lovely.  Are you enjoying your fusing glass?

I love the confetti! I used a bunch of that and frit on these pieces. I used cut glass too. If you look closely you can tell the difference....what was what. They were just a mess of different types of glass and layers when they got fired so I wasn't sure how they would come out.

Can you tell I like to experiment? I figure the university art center has everything....all of the confetti and frit and powders so why not try them out.  I think of it as try before you buy.  Wink
