This is my second Green Man. The first was using the double iridized sandwich technique and for this one I used my Taurus 3 ring saw to cut the image out of some aventurine green glass then I dimensionally fused it onto the clear glass. I don't have a slump mold large enough for it (it's 11"), so I'll have to wait until my class starts again to finish it.

Enjoy!

Working a sewing machine is harder to than driving a JCB. No, really.

Nice job with the cutting and it turned out really neat.  I think it would look better on a contrasting color glass rather than clear so the green face would stand out more, but it still looks pretty good.

Love the texture on this one! That deep green also makes it pop. Great work!

This is grand!  He looks like a tree man!  LOVE IT! -  Of course you are my envy at this time because clearly you have a glass saw.  I want one, but wonder if I could manage running a glass saw on account of I am not the brightest bulb!  Good work!  Do more!

Joby: The Taurus 3 Ring Saw comes with a DVD with instructional (and amusing) videos which are also available on YouTube. That thing cuts glass like butter!
