Glass Art by José Chardiet

This glass work of art by José Chardiet really captured my attention.  I love the colors and the shapes are very unusual and captivating.  I know this is nothing that I could even come close to doing myself, so I just admire these glass pieces.  This glass piece was made by blowing glass and casting glass.

“Blue Etruscan Voyage”

Cast and Blown Glass

“Mystic” was made by blowing glass and hot sculpting glass.

“Mystic”

Blown Glass and Hot Sculpted Glass

I saw these sculptures on the Hooks-Epstein Galleries website. The Hooks-Epstein Gallery website, http://www.hooksepsteingalleries.com, describes José Chardiet’s work.  “José Chardiet designs and creates his glass sculptures by using blowing and casting processes. His ideas stem from various topics ranging from Spanish still-life painting to African Art. Chardiet’s goal is to create sculptures imbued with a spiritual and inner life.”

I was very impressed and wanted to share them with you.  His glass sculptures are totally different than the fused glass that I make.

Here are some more of José Chardiet’s pieces on display:

“Circo” was made by blowing glass and casting glass.

José Chardiet does several different series of art.  “Richardson Bronze” is part of a series of glass teapots.  He made these glass teapots by hot sculpting and sandblasting.

He also does different kinds of glass art by blowing glass, like “Snow Angels” and “Leather Squiggle.”  He is very creative and artistic.  Stay tuned for more…

Fused Glass Plate with Iridized Glass

Glass Plate with Various Iridized Glass #4

This 8″ Fused Glass Plate is the fourth in my series of four fused glass plates using various colors of iridized glass and using different shapes and sizes.  I also add dichroic noodles for added interest.

In this fused glass plate, I used black, turquoise, light blue and red iridized glass.  The dichroic noodles are gold.

I didn’t get any response in my last blog post about what colors or patterns you think I should make in my next series.  I want to hear from you!

Glass Plate with iridized glass

This 8″ Fused Glass Plate is the third in a series of four with several different colors of iridized glass.  The iridized glass in this Fused Glass Plate has red,  royal blue, gold, silver, black, and light blue.  I also tack fused three pieces of dichroic noodles to add some interest to all four fused glass plates in this series.

I have one more fused glass plate in this series to show you next time.  I want to design more of these fused glass plates after  my next craft fair.

What do you think of my series of fused glass plates?  Do you have a design you’d like to see me make?

Please leave a comment!!  I’d love to read what you have in mind.

Fused Glass Plate with Iridized Glass

fused-glass-plate-various-irid-pattern-1

I made four 8″ Fused Glass Plates with iridized glass a couple of months ago.  I had a desire to make a series of these fused glass plates.   I used several different colors of iridized glass and put them in the kiln face down.  I added a clear on top of the iridized glass.  The next kiln firing, I fire polished the fused glass plate face up and added the different colors of Sizzle Stix to tack fuse them.  I slumped the fused glass plate into an 8″ slumper mold.

Red Frit Glass Bowl

Red Frit Glass Bowl

To make this glass bowl, I have been experimenting with tack fusing coarse frit.  I started out using Deep Aqua Coarse Frit, which is a gorgeous color.  I thought a cherry red glass bowl would look very pretty, too.

I use an embroidery hoop and fill it with the coarse frit.  I make sure to leave enough spaces, so some holes remain after the tack fuse.  The tack fuse leaves a lot of texture in the glass bowl.
