This is a re-creation of a piece I have in my home that a client from my 'real' job requested I make for her.  I use them for votive candles.  This particular piece is an 11" square. I love the look of draped glass - but it can be difficult to achieve the look I have in mind each time I put a piece in the kiln.  Right now I'm limited by the depth of my kiln and have to go to the local teaching studio if I want to do large drapes.  I'm looking forward to my next kiln purchase so that I can experiment more with drapes - I'd love to try draping some heavier pieces, like pot melts, and maybe some more delicate pieces like weaves or stringer compositions.

Thank you, Nolansmomster!  And btw - wearing your super soft cowl right now!  I'm like a silly little kid!   Cheesy

Thanks, CrazyEye - and yep, one sheet fused to 1400ish to smooth out the single roll glass and round the edges before draping.  I've done two layers, but prefer the delicate look of a single sheet for these. 

Ikebana inserts would be great in these, HSG - I may just have to make some 'dual purpose' pieces!  Thanks!
