So I have this little light in the ceiling over my stairway going downstairs and since I moved in 12 years ago it's had this piece of pink streaky glass in it. I decided recently to replace that (why did it take me so long to think of this?) with a piece of fused glass. It looks great! And instead of the stairs being bathed in pink light, now they'll be bathed in blue goodness!

Enjoy!

Before (with pink streaky glass):


A little perspective on its size (and with Pendragon the cat):

OOOH! That is so beautiful! It really caught my eye; I love the detail and intricacy in it. The sky could have easily lent itself to an underwater scene. I'd like to know how big is this piece?

Wow! That's a lot of detail for such a small piece! I wish I had a lamp-shade like that. It's even prettier than the traditional leaded stained glass look.

Well!  This is just fantastic!  You are a genius!
What are the measurements of this piece?

It's always fun to make something for your own home instead of sending everything you make to friends and relatives!  Nice Nice Nice!

...So...This is what insanity must be like, I thought.....and I could kind of see the appeal.

@joby560: it's a little piece, only 7" x 4" and flat. I confess that I went from room to room thinking about where I could put light fixtures into the walls so that I could make more. But I'll just stick to plates and bowls!

That is amazing. The detail is wonderful, I would never have thought it was as small as it is. Well done.
