More fused glass wind chimes.
The longest ting measures about one foot long and about 1 inch wide.
Fastened to a piece of wood found on Lopez island in Washington state.

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

They are beautiful. I love your choice of colors.
I admire your mastery of this art. What COE is your glass? And what kind of wash did you use to prevent the glass from sticking to the shelf? Or did you use the special paper? I ask because I tried fusing in a mold but the glass got stuck in it and both were ruined.

beautiful...I just love your bright colors...I would worry that our strong winds might break them...are they durable or do you suggest protection from harsh elements?  I think I would just hang them as art in a safe place! Cheesy

Thanks for all of the positive feedback!

yoopidou:  I use COE 96 - Spectrum Glass.  I use kiln wash, not the paper.  If you are washing on a mold, you need to give it several coats and cover the whole mold.  It can be frustrating when a mold is ruined because of sticking glass.

alwaysinmyroom:  Thank you!  They are pretty durable.  They have a two layer base and then the colored pieces that are stacked on top. So, it ends up being anywhere from 3 - 5 pieces of glass thick.  I have a set hanging out side and they have lasted for a few years.  One set I hung up broke because the twine I used to tie the metal wire to broke and they fell to the ground, but other than that, they are pretty durable and they sound kind of groovy.  I highly recommend that you make some. they are great fun and a great way to use up scrap glass.
