21  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Chewbacca Fused Glass Plate- Halloween Candy Dish!!! on: August 16, 2009 12:32:00 PM
I accidentally broke my Chewbacca glass, so I fused it into a plate! Contains the entire glass Grin



22  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / New Copper and Fused Glass Pendants on: August 03, 2009 12:48:43 PM
Die cut stars and flowers [Sizzix!] made of copper sheet[it changes color in the kiln], fused in-between French vanilla, black, turquoise, pink and soon to be fused, teal and clear glass. They're about 1 and 1/2" to 1 and 3/4", it recently dawned on me that I don't like to wear most of the smaller stuff I make, so things have been growing  Cheesy






23  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / New Fused Glass Plates on: June 29, 2009 07:40:28 AM
 New small fused glass sushi plates, all between 4 and 5 inches. Not that they need to be used for sushi, they're just made in a sushi plate mold Grin And fused bottle spoon rests I added spoons to, plus a few other slumped bottles-

The strawberry soap is from Allison at Dirty Ass Soaps, we swap soap for glass every Indie Garage Sale, so many amazing soaps!

and that's my ring I made and wear every day-

24  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / New Fused Glass Decal Pendants and more! on: May 31, 2009 07:14:25 AM
New pendants, I got a printer to make my own decals a month or so ago, it's been so fun to play with!

Some new dichro pieces-

Copper in glass-

Pocket vases-

and some slumped bottles-

and my new baby!!!

Questions/comments welcome, if it's about decals, you need an HP laser printer that used iron oxide, or mine's ferrite, in the toner, and special waterslide decal paper.  Grin

25  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / My Accidental Miro Tribute Sushi Plate! [I'm smitten, so many pictures!] on: March 25, 2009 09:39:52 AM
I made my first sushi plate! my kiln is small, so it's 5 and 1/2" square. I just got the mold 2 days ago, and a drop vase ring yesterday, I'm so in love with glass! And I finally got clay, so I don't need to buy any more molds!

I decided to use scraps for the first one, with a clear base layer. I thought if it didn't work out I'd save my "good" glass that way {this is all the same bullseye glass as the good stuff, just scraps. So I guess by "good" I mean "bigger" glass]

It turned out to take much longer to build the layers than it would to just cut a few bigger pieces and make a pattern, I don't know how often I'll do this. I do love it though!

Contains all bullseye scrap glass, and 3 pieces of dichroic glass.

I'm super-excited to start making my own molds, but also excited to make more of these. And maybe do a matching drop vase.

When I saw the pictures I was amazed to realize how much it reminds me of Joan Miro's work, I love Miro. I hadn't thought about that if a while I guess, so the accidental tribute aspect made me happy.





upside down, needs a bit more cleaning, I just HAD to show it off-

In progress-

Cut out before the 1st fusing-


First it was fused into a tile, this was it, pic taken before grinding the edges to even them out to put it back in the kiln-


This was it in the kiln, right after it slumped into the shape of the mold, hubby held the lid of my kiln while I took a super fast picture. It's about 12OO degrees, that's why the yellow looks red, the red is almost black etc-


and of course, you've seen the finished piece!  Grin

the end!

With my new necklace! Grin

I have a show in 3 weeks, my first with my glass. So I spent the morning removing pieces from their bails, reattaching them differently, restringing things, and in the process, making this necklace. This length of chain was ALL I had in the house except ball chain, I can't seem to run out of the stuff.

So now I'm off to the store then the net to search out more chain, but wanted opinions, anyone and everyone, assuming you were shopping, would the non-matching glass keep you from buying it? I'll make some that are matching/co-ordinated and some that aren't, but i'd still love responses BEFORE I find out no-one wants mis-matched necklaces! Grin

these are all the same necklace {my fused glass, made in my kiln!} -

27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New Rings! Fresh from the kiln! on: March 11, 2009 07:35:28 AM
New fused glass rings, and a few other pieces!

Starting to get hot!

28  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / My first fused glass decals! on: February 21, 2009 05:20:52 PM
I was so happy they worked! color decals, in-between white and clear glass. I needed to check and see if the firing schedule worked, so I only did these 3. Now that I tested them I have a zillion more to work on, and start some with more color in the background.



Spring bouquet-



29  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / My Butterfly Wing Ring. Mine, all Mine! on: February 04, 2009 11:21:30 AM
and it's mine, all mine! Fresh from the kiln this morning!

Dichro glass under 3mm clear glass. It's got this beautiful curve and depth to it, I want to go out wearing it just to get a compliment, and I NEVER wear jewelry! Fused last night, guess I already said that though! It turns such pretty colors! Wheeeee!

and the rest of todays bounty from the kiln-


30  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Amelia's Garden, and many pics of where it grew... on: January 16, 2009 09:28:48 AM
 Yep, record bowls...

So, Joe has finally been organizing his record room. And he brought down this stack records to donate. It was sitting in the living room entirely too close to the kitchen not to melt a few, which turned into a few more... We live in a very record oriented house, Amelia is pretty much obsessed with records. She has her own collection of  indestructible children's 78's, 78's being the main type of record the hubby collects.
 When I put the first record in the oven Amelia screamed and cried, I had to show her other records and distract her, not to mention get her away from the oven and any fumes. Once I gave her a bowl she got into it though, and collected things to put in them, and was VERY happy with the idea of the bowls. SO I decided to make her flowers.

I wish I had given them faces, the next ones will get them. I was afraid she'd just rip the sequins off, but so far so good.

We just bought the house, ignore the painters tape and whatever else, I'm working on every room at once!

she's up close to smell them! And yes, her stool is covered in sprinkles-

Where the garden grew, so to speak-

The little yellow one's are some of her kids 78's, from the Forties and Fifties-

The Graphanola-

The Victrola-

The books of records he brought down to donate that started the record melting spree- And see, I'm ripping out the ugly carpet, but it has horrible ancient adhesive under it, and takes forever in small sections... No wonder I stopped to melt things-

More records slowly taking over the house!

So yeah, anyway, record bowls make great flowers, and make toddlers happy!
