This was the third piece I made in my fused glass class. While I am very pleased with the way the frog and the frog eggs turned out, I don't really like the mold I used for slumping. I may try this piece again (after I explore many, many more ideas!) as a sushi plate.

The base plate is blue with a fully fused iridescent clear piece on top. I then added the pieces of the frog (did I mention I'm very pleased with the frog?) for a full fuse. The frog eggs were tack fused on, and then the whole thing was slumped.

That's kind of a neat concept. And I love the colours! Very smooth.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I like your concept.  I would never have thought to add eggs to an art piece.  Great work.

This is so gross and so cool! Eww, a plate of frogs eggs! Wonderful.

Did you make the eggs (how?) or use something premade for them?

I made the eggs (and the frog's eye, too) in advance. To make glass balls, you have to cut perfect equilateral triangles of glass, then put them in the kiln for a full fuse temperature. The frog's eye turned out to be a bit oval, and I think it's glorious. I used black and clear confetti glass to make the eggs (and eye).
