A set of fused glass wind chimes HOT out of the kiln this afternoon.

They measure about 7.5 inches long per ting.
I attached them to a piece of driftwood I found on Lopez Island on the beach, here in Washington state.

I simply fused high fire wire into the glass to use as hangers.  Eye ring screws are screwed into the wood to allow the tings to dangle and move more easily.

The sound is quite nice.

I titled it "Odd Man Out"

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