These sun catchers were all tack fused to 1325 degrees.  I am groovin' on the look of tack fusing as of late.  Like the texture.  They measure between 2 inches square - 3inches by 2 inches in size.  A high fire wire was fused in between the base pieces of glass.

These are so pretty, but I especially like the green with the dabs of blue on the petals.

Oh, they are lovely! So summery Smiley

I thought they were pinwheels, but I've looked back up and the first one has leaves so they appear to be flowers Tongue I think they're great either way!

I really like this. Forgive my ignorance, but what is tack fusing, and how did you do it?

Thanks for the compliments....

Hollie: Tack fusing is when you bring the kiln up hot enough to start to melt the glass together, but it isn't hot enough to completely melt the glass pieces flat.  So, you retain some of the texture.

Yep, great job there, Joby. Those will look great hanging in the sun.
