These faces are hot out of the kiln this evening.
They measure about 4 inches wide by 6 inches tall, except the green one, 2 inches wide and 8 inches tall.
I fired high fire wire into them.  Then I strung died shells on a wire to use for hanging.  Viola

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

So fun and cute! Love how you use the colored beads for the hangers. Will these also function as suncatchers, or is the glass opaque?

These are great! I love how colorful they are! I also like how they are very mask like. Sort of like they came from an urban tribe.

HSG,  They are opaque!  I groove on the vivid & bright color hues of opaque~

These are really funny!  I do love that they are sturdy looking and so bright!  Nice mix of colors, too (I love all the summery citrus colors you used!)...the green is my favorite!
