Blue Butterfly Fused Glass Spoon Rest

Fused Glass Spoon Rest

This fused glass spoon rest is one of my favorites!  I love butterflies and I love flowers!  So, I combined the two on this glass spoon rest.  The butterfly is the hardest thing to make.  I use a template to cut out two pieces for the blue wings.  Then, I grind each one so they match and actually look like butterfly wings.  I add small white pieces of glass to add interest to the butterfly.

I use glass stringers for the stems and small pieces of glass for the small flower petals.  When everything is in place, I fuse two layers of clear glass with the butterfly and flowers.  To finish off the fused glass spoon rest, I slump the glass into a spoon rest mold to give it the shape of a spoon rest.

This spoon rest sold soon after I finished it.  I guess I will need to make another one, but I never make the same one twice, so the butterfly will have to be a different color, etc.

Red Fused Glass Plate

Fused Glass Plate

This fused glass plate was a custom order.  A lady contacted me and told me her parents were going to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary.  She saw a similar glass plate on my website (www.mastersglassart.com) as the glass plate pictured above.  She wondered if she could get a similar fused glass plate with the predominant glass piece bigger and red.  The reason she wanted more red was because a 40th wedding anniversary was a ruby anniversary, which I learned later.  The result was this fused glass plate.  I think the red is a gorgeous color and makes a bold statement, yet the other colors tone it down a bit.  I also added some dichroic noodles outlining the red and another one passing over the three colors on the right side.  The dichroic noodles really finishes the glass plate off beautifully.

The lady and her parents loved the plate!!

Burgandy Fused Glass Vase

Burgandy Fused Glass Vase

This fused glass vase is really gorgeous!  The burgundy swirls throughout the glass makes such a unique design.  Imagine a candle burning inside this glass vase and the colors and designs the flame gives off!

This glass vase has sold and I don’t have any more glass like this.  However, I just haven’t ordered any of it, yet.
