  Like the Kokopelli I posted, the individual pieces of this horse head was cut from a pattern with a ring saw. I then laid the pieces back out onto a  piece of white glass and took it to a high tack fuse.  I like these segmented type images that form an image from a few pieces of glass.

I like it! It's simple and striking all at the same time.  Smiley

Thanks. The simple design is what I liked about it too... Only a couple of the pieces were hard to cut out yet it makes a nice design.  The scroll saw magazine I got this out of showed this as a inlay project that looked really nice. At least when I cut things like this with my ring saw, the rounding of the edges when fused hides a lot more of my mistakes than when I try to cut this out in wood with a scroll saw. Cheesy

I have another segmented design that isn't so simple and was a lot more work to cut out. I'll post that one later.

Thanks for the comments.
