Almond and Green Fused Glass Vase

Fused Glass Vase

Guess how tall this fused glass vase is!  Nope…sorry… it is 10.5 inches tall!

This fused glass vase is one of the highest vases I have made.  Needless to say, there are a lot of steps to making it.  There is a total of five layers of glass, plus the green glass lace.  There are three layers of glass in the base of the fused glass vase.

First, I fused three of the five layers of glass together, then, I fused the other two layers of glass to the first three layers.  The diameter of these five layers was 8 inches.  I placed these five layers of glass onto my drop ring mold, which was propped up 10 inches.  I put it in the kiln and watched the glass as it dropped through the ring mold to the shelf.  When the glass dropped as far as I wanted it to, I turned off the heat, so it wouldn’t drop any further.  I let the kiln continue with the firing schedule until it was all done.

Next, I fused three layers of glass to make the base for the fused glass vase.  The base gives the vase more stability.  Then, I tack fused the base to the vase.

This fused glass vase is lovely sitting on a table or shelf just by itself.  However, you can use it for fresh or dried flowers.

Iridized Fused Glass Plate

Fused Glass Plate

This fused glass plate will look great on a shelf!  Since the glass is iridized, this glass plate will also look great near the sunlight where it will really sparkle.

I added three strips of dichroic glass to add even more interest.

Blue Fused Glass Vase

Fused Glass Vase

I entered this fused glass vase into a contest by Delphi Glass.  If I am one of the winners, this picture will be spotlighted in their catalog.

I used Spectrum Spirit Vienna glass (Blue, White and Clear colors) for this fused glass vase.  I cut 12 – 2 inch squares and fused them to the edge of some clear glass.  I then draped it over a cone mold to get the shape.

What do you think of the vase?  Do you think I should win?

Red Fused Glass Spoon Rest

Red Fused Glass Spoon Rest

This is a small fused glass spoon rest.  It measures 8 inches long and 2 1/1 inches wide.  I used a red translucent glass with a clear glass on top.  After that, I added small squares of black and white glass.  I cut the two pieces for the fused glass spoon rest using a template I made from the mold.  After adding the small squares, I fused it in my kiln.  When the glass was cool, I put it on top of the spoon rest mold and slumped it to get the shape.

This fused glass spoon rest is popular at our Art Festivals.

Cranberry Fused Glass Vase

This small fused glass vase is 4 1/2″ high and 4″ in diameter at the top.  First, I fused two layers of glass about 4 1/2″ in diameter.  Second, I used a drop ring mold, which is a mold with a 3″ hole in the middle.  I propped the mold 4″ high, placed the glass on the mold and put it back in the kiln.  I had to watch the glass as it dropped through the mold, so it would land nicely on the shelf.  If it isn’t watched, all the glass could fall through the mold and create a large pile of glass on the shelf.  I know this, because it has happened to me 🙂

Third, I fused two layers of glass for the base of the fused glass vase.  Fourth, I tack fused the base to the vase.  This gives the vase more stability.

I plan on making a taller fused glass vase with the Cranberry glass, but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
