Beware: objects in glass are actual size.

Haha! Sunning himself. How cute!
I agree with the tree idea, though I am a bit biased because I am currently obsessed with trees.
I would say that maybe you could do a sort of labyrinth? Just throwing the idea out there. Either way, the glass is beautiful!

Thanks.  I'd forgotten I'd posted that here.  I've not come up with any ideas that compels that much yet, but I figure I just need more of the same stuff to bring out the ideas... so I've fused more bits and pieces. Actually, I'm up to 7 pounds of the stuff now but still can't quit pull out what I'm sensing is in there... so I'll keep making it. Hopefully I'll come up with something before I run out of scrap glass. Cheesy

Here is a picture of the pile from the other day when I pulled another shelf full from the kiln...




7 pounds and an area about 24" square piled with the stuff. 

A little closer view...



I've used up most of my colorful scrap and am working on the rest of my black, gray, French Vanilla and a few other one off colors.

Just because it looks like a glass orgy going on, does that make it glass porn?   Grin

I'll tell you, this is so easy to make, even I was able to do it. And I only had to read the directions twice (although I did look at the diagrams a couple more times. Wink).

I'm beginning to think this will make a better 16x20 enlarged photo hanging on the wall. Maybe Bullseye would let me hang it in their gallery. Cheesy  A picture would sure make a great jigsaw puzzle for those that like tough puzzles, that's for sure.  Cheesy

What would be cool with all those bits is to do a color gradation abstract.  Cool
