Olive Tray - 10 inches by 5 inches
Sloped Plate 7 inches square
Wind Chimes - 1 foot wide

All made with straight cuts! - Easy Easy! -  The squiggle on the square plate was made bby bending a glass stringer in an open flame and then fused into the glass in the kiln.

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

These are so pretty! I love the colors and your designs! How hard is working with glass? I want to learn but I don't think there is a place for me to learn around here.   Sad

Working with glass is a lot easier than it seems... The biggest hurdle is that you need a glass fusing kiln.  You cut glass, stack it and fire it in the kiln, Viola!
It is much easier than you think.  You can read online how to do it if there are no places to take a class in your area.

Good luck!  I encourage you to do it!

Oh wow I think I could manage that! I think I need to find a class just to be on the safe side. For some reason cutting glass makes me nervous... Thanks for the class idea.. I'm going to start looking for one now.

I like the wind chimes. I did a bunch of frit bars in a weave pattern mold and I noticed they had a nice tinkling sound when I tapped them. Almost like a Xylophone.  I didn't fuse any wire in the ends though so I used them for other things instead but it's on my list to do again and put wire loops in the ends.

Nice job on all of them.
