2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / happy Pride in glass! on: June 25, 2015 06:19:50 AM
I'm celebrating LGBT Pride in Toronto this weekend, so of course I made a few rainbow pride themed items.  The OUTLAW sign for myself, the rainbow buttons for a sewing friend, and the four rainbow 'stones' to share with a special group of friends.  Happy Pride to all my queer family around the world.

3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Birds for Baby on: June 07, 2015 09:01:14 AM
I made this fused glass piece as a baby shower present for a friend, it can hang on the wall or in a window.  I was inspired by similar folk art birds I saw on pinterest.  Smiley
4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / poetry glass dish on: May 17, 2015 01:37:59 PM
I found a cool alphabet that I figured would work well in glass.  I imagined a square plate with 9 letters.  And my best friend is a great published poet.  So I set her a challenge, write me a three word poem, and each word has to be three letters long.  I picked my fave, which was "NOT YET DAY" and made this dish!  The blue on blue Y is a little hard to make out but otherwise I love it, and that it represents our combined work Smiley

6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 107 ENTRIES / Abandoned Art Message in a Bottle on: March 06, 2015 04:36:49 PM
I recently made up these bottles to take to a friend who lives near the beach in Toronto, it was too cold that day but I left them with her to abandon along the beach boardwalk in hopes people will find and smile at my little gifts.

The small bottles are 4 inches tall.  They are painted with blue and green glass paint.  For the inside I cut a little linocut and made prints with my message to "Make Waves."  I rolled them and added a few silver stars with each print.  Then stamped and wrote on tags to encourage people to pick up and take home the bottles.

7  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / cardinal glass dish on: January 25, 2015 11:52:46 AM
I recently discovered 20th c illustrator Charley Harper and I just love his work.  The strong graphic animals are the best.  So I took inspiration from this Cardinal With Berries print and made a glass dish with red cardinal.  I'm pretty happy with the result. Smiley

8  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / R2D2 in glass and other ornaments on: January 18, 2015 07:24:41 AM
I enjoyed making some xmas ornaments for friends in fused glass this year.  My favourite was this R2D2.

And I made a lot of trees:

9  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / fused glass belt buckles on: January 04, 2015 08:11:46 AM
In looking for new projects to make with fused glass I ran into the idea of belt buckles.  I ordered these two antique nickel blanks off Etsy and fused pieces to put in them, each combines two different pieces of glass for texture and colour.  I found nice leather belts at a place called Bootmaster in Toronto with snaps to change buckles.

I didn't get the dimensions or shape perfect and ground them down to fit. 

Overall I was happy with these as gifts as were my friends Smiley

10  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / the fairy door on: September 24, 2014 07:52:19 PM
For a friends garden, place this little fused glass door against a tree and create a magical gateway for fairies Smiley
