21  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / More Fused Glass Wind Chimes Hot out of the Kiln on: February 17, 2013 01:00:52 PM

Yet, another set of fused glass wind chimes hot out of the kiln.
5 tings.  This one measures approx. 14 inches wide and 10 inches long.

Makes a groovy sound!
22  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Fused Glass Wind Chimes on: February 13, 2013 04:36:27 PM

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"
23  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Kindergarten Makes Fused Glass Night Lights on: February 10, 2013 11:25:00 AM

My Kindergarten class designed fused glass night lights. Attached are the photos of the work in progress before firing.  They came out quite well.  I failed to take pictures of any after they were assembled, but the kids were beyond excited with the results.  - I can't show their faces on the pics, obviously - but the expressions were those of kids deep in thought and careful with accuracy!

They measured 2.5 inches square.  I attached them to night light kids I got on line.

27  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Fused glass Chime on: November 18, 2012 07:40:39 PM

I turned the fused glass faces into a wind chime.  The wires have dyed shells on them for a bit of color- Viola!
28  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Fused Glass Snow People on: November 15, 2012 06:08:16 PM

I teach Kindergarten.  My class designed snow people out of glass and we tack fused them.  Quite a hoot to see five year olds meticulous about the layout of their hats and scarves.

They measure 3.5 inches by 1 inch.
29  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Fused Glass Christmas Tray on: November 14, 2012 06:10:43 PM

Someone ordered up a holiday tray with a lighted tree on it.  This is the end result.
Measures 10.5 x 6.5 inches.
30  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Fused Glass Dichroic Glass Pendants, Round 2 on: November 12, 2012 03:21:41 PM

So, I whipped up another set of these.  They need to go back in for the second fire to round and smooth the edges.  I am groovin' on how wild they look.
