Red Flames Fused Glass Vase

This is the third fused glass vase like this one I made for a lady.  The “flames” or fingers are very delicate and two of the flames broke off the first fused glass vase before I even mailed it.  One of the flames broke off the second vase while it was being mailed to the lady.  Fortunately, I got my money back from the insurance I bought for it.

I needed a new strategy for this fused glass vase.  The “flames” needed to be stronger, so I added some clear glass behind each of the “flames.”  This seems to have worked out better.  I still need to mail this fused glass vase to the lady, so cross your fingers for me!  I want this one to make it safe and sound 🙂

Do you think this fused glass vase looks like flames?  Let me know what you think about “Flames #3.”  I’d love to get your feedback!!

    hi, i am having trouble with my vases, i am a newbie, i have tried to schedules for draping. One separated, it was brown transparent to solid black I used one layer, I am wondering if 2 layers are always suggested from the solid black. Could you send me your firing schedule. Eiether the glass is to long too. What a waste. Thanks for your reply. Also your red vase is neat!

      Hi Marguerite,

      I don’t quite understand you problems. Where did the one separate if you used only one layer? Are you using a large cone mold? Are you letting it drape a long way down the mold?

      You can drape one layer of glass. I do it all the time.

    It’s really well made, and it caught my eye straight away. Great idea with the clear glass reinforcement!
