These are easy to make.  Cut two 3 inch squares.  Place them on top of each other so the corners are mis-aligned.  Then slump in a kiln at 1350 degrees over a stainless steel souffle cup that has been kiln washed.  Viola!  I added bits of colors on the corners to give it a little more spunk. They look like a child made them and oddly enough that is what makes me like them!

You don't need a permit for a glue gun.

The first one (blue and blue) looks like water droplets! Like when you drop a water droplet onto smooth water, and it ripples and ...well. I don't know how to explain it, but it's super cool. Love it!

These are so pretty. Bet they are even better with little candles flickering inside. Just the right amount of color with the clear glass.

Can you tell me what size stainless steel cup you used? and did it have a lip on the rim?
Thanks Smiley
