Hi, I just joined the site and this is my first glass image I've posted.  I'm a glass fuser and like to try different things. This image is of a multi-layer Kokopelli image that I cut from a wood scroll saw pattern (I've done a number of things from wood scroll saw patterns. It's a great source).  The pieces were cut with a ring saw and laid out on the background sheet of glass then taken to a high tack fuse temp.

Very cool! Are you planning to slump it or leave it flat?

Thanks, Midnight, Hgddm and Grobarka.   I'm leaving it flat, although I've not decided what to do with it. I was thinking of framing it with either wood or a sand stone colored glass boarder.  Now that you meantion it though, it might look ok with vertical half round slump to it so it would stand up on it's own. Hmm, I'll have to think on that. Cheesy Thanks.

Midnight, I have a number of things I've done like this which I'll post. I've done a lot of different things although not enough to really get good at any one technique. I like jumping around too much, although I've probably spent the most time doing Freeze N Fuse stuff. Cheesy

Kokopelli is a ROCK STAR!  Love it. 

If you have a website or place you sell your work list it in your profile so we can check it out!  Just don't post it on the page as they get cranky about that here.

Thanks, Joby. I do have a web site, but it's not specific to my glass, mostly my photography and the dog breed we have. I don't sell my work either.  Other than maybe a couple of things I've done, I don't think there would be much of a market for it.  I have given stuff to dog rescue groups though, so they could use them to help raise money for their rescue fund.

Thanks again.

Mike

I love the colors! I just finished an "altered" puzzle and featured kokopelli on one of the pieces!
