Red Glass Spoon Rest

 

I recently made this glass spoon rest.  I love the black and white squares as the design element.  I made a similar one about one year ago and it sold at the next Craft Fair I attended.  I finally got around to making another one.

The black and white glass squares started out square, but during the fusing process, they rounded out a bit.  I am glad that it does it — adds to the rounded edges of the glass spoon rest.

I used Spectrum 96 cherry red glass as the top layer and a clear piece on the bottom.  I added the black and white squares and did a full fuse in the kiln.  After that, I slumped it into a small spoon rest mold.

Glass Plate with Dichroic Noodles

Glass Plate with Dichroic Noodles

This glass plate has silver iridized borders with clear glass for the background.  I added blue and gold dichroic noodles as the design element.

Don’t you love all the little bubbles?  Some people try so hard to eliminate bubbles, but I think it adds to the hand-crafted one-of-a-kind piece of glass art.  I must admit I try to eliminate bubbles, but sometimes it just isn’t possible with certain designs of glass art or the way the glass art is fired.

Red and White Glass Plate

Red and White Plate

I made this 8″ Glass Plate for the Earthenworks Gallery in Yahats.  The Gallery owner ordered 12 geometric plates last Oct.  He wasn’t in any hurry to get them, since the peak time for tourists traveling through is during the spring and summer.  I am almost finished.  I have one more glass plate to go.

Can you see the design in the red glass strips?  I cut the pieces and off-set them to provide flow in the glass plate.

Red and White Candle Holder

Red and White Candle Holder

I made the three rectangular red glass lace awhile ago, but didn’t know what to do with them.  I just recently thought they would look great fused to some Firelight White Glass and then slumped into this candle holder mold.

I like the results.   I think the length of the red glass lace was perfect.  It was like I had planned to do this all along.  I guess that is why I never did anything with it before.  They were waiting for me to come up with the idea.

Purple Glass Vase

Purple Glass Vase

Purple Glass Vase

I created this glass vase a couple of months ago.  There are a lot of steps to go through and a lot of firings.  This glass vase is 10 1/2″ tall, so it required five layers of glass to drop it so far.

A drop out ring vase of 4″ requires two layers of glass.  For every two inches added to the height, another layer of glass is required.   The reason for adding a layer at these intervals is to prevent the glass just below the rim from getting too thin.

In addition to the five layers of glass, I fused some white lace to the bottom.

When the vase is dropping, attention is required so the bottom of the vase doesn’t drop too much.  If this happens, the bottom will start to bulge out.  The bottom of this glass vase started to bulge a little.  Actually, the bulge occurred when I was tack fusing the base to the vase.  I think I held it for too long.

I’d love to know what you think of it!!  Please leave a message — it doesn’t take very long.
