Feathers in a Fused Glass Plate

Image

This fused glass plate was a custom order.  I think it turned out very well, especially the feathers!  I am giving most of the credit to my husband.  He cut out all the glass and cleaned it, while I did the fusing.

Each of the white feathers are one piece of glass with black frit applied on top of the white glass.

Black Heart Fused Glass Pendant

Fused Glass Pendant Black Heart

I just made this fused glass pendant for a customer.  I had a red heart glass pendant on display at our booth at an Art Festival.  A lady asked me if I had a black heart glass pendant and I told her that I didn’t.  However, I told her I would make one for her, if she wanted and she said “REALLY!!”  She told me that she used to have one that her father gave her a long time ago and she had lost it.  She felt really sad about losing it, because her father had made it while serving in the military.  She wasn’t sure how he made it.  She had been looking for a replacement until she saw my red heart fused glass pendant.  Apparently, it resembled the one she lost.

I told her I was very busy with Christmas orders, so wouldn’t get to it until after New Years or so.  She said that was fine, since it was for her, anyway.  After I made one for her, I needed to glue a bail onto the fused glass pendant.  Well, the bail came off after my husband does his “test” to see if the bail is secure.  This glue wasn’t very old, so I was surprised that it didn’t work.  So, I opened a new package and glued the bail on the glass pendant, again.  This time – success!

I got an email from the lady when she got her new fused glass pendant.  She said she loved it and it was worth the wait 🙂

Fused Glas Frit Bowl

Fused Glass Frit Bowl

This fused glass bowl was made out of glass frit, which are small pieces of glass.  I tack fused the pieces together and then slumped it into a bowl mold.

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!!

Fused Glass Pendant — Red Butterfly #3

From the last posting I made, I wrote about two Fused Glass Butterflies I had made for a customer.  She told me what changes she wanted for the butterfly.  This is what I came up with.  My customer really liked this design!  She told me she wanted it slumped, like the fused glass pendant from a couple of years ago.  I have done that.  Now, I need to drill holes in the wings, so it can be worn as a pendant for her friend who is getting married.

I am glad I was able to make her happy with this fused glass pendant!

Fused Glass Pendant – Red Butterfly

Butterfly #1

Butterfly #2

 

In 2007, I blogged about a fused glass red butterfly pendant I slumped to give it dimension.  A couple of weeks ago, a customer asked me if she could buy the fused glass pendant for a friend who is getting married.  Unfortunately, the butterfly came with the mold, so I didn’t have another one to sell her.

Since I started using a ring saw to cut out shapes, I told her I would try to recreate the butterfly.  The fused glass butterfly #1  in the picture above is the first one I cut out.  I didn’t think it was like the original butterfly, so I cut out a second butterfly.  I liked this one better.

However, the customer didn’t care for the first butterfly.  She wanted the top wings larger and the bottom wings smaller.  I made a sketch of another butterfly and she really liked it, so I will be cutting out another one tomorrow or the next day.

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!!
