This one has a decal on it inspired by the project in the Delphi glass ebook.


Quote
From the top: These are individually cut piano notes. The space between each one also has a cut piece (I am now using stringers for the most recent ones that I have made). Below the musical notes and text says: Never be flat, sometimes be sharp, always be natural

Middle one: these are beach huts that are a common site on UK beaches - they are usually owned and, sometimes, rented. They are used for people who want a base to stay for the day (often they don't have any electricity) on the beach.

Bottom one: This was inspired by an idea in the Delphi glass Holiday e-book. A place in the UK does custom printing for ceramics and I ordered a sheet with many different images on including this one.

All three were slumped on a mould like this:

This allows them to stand alone on a shelf.

You get so many small details in your pieces, and I find that your unique skill in glass.
