Done or Complete – Fused Glass Design

When is a fused glass design done? When is it complete? Not until it is completely done. When I design a fused glass plate, sometimes I design it on paper first and then construct it. Other times I start with a piece of glass and start cutting, constructing and designing as I go. Whichever way […]

Divine Intervention In Glass and Life

Things don’t always turn out the way I plan it; in my glass pieces and in life. I recently experimented with some pattern bar flow slabs. In one of my experiments the slab did not end up even. One side was higher than the other.  After cutting up the slab on the tile saw I […]

Stained Glass Pattern Setup

Tooth Fairy Plate Color Magic

Today I was photographing a new fused glass tooth fairy plate that I made for my Etsy shop. This proved to be frustrating. I could not get a true color in the photograph. The border of the plate is a very pale pink with a hint of purple. I’d call it a pink blush color. […]

Design Inspiration from the Mediterranean

Lest you think I’ve fallen of the face of the earth… I have not. I have been traveling with my wonderful husband celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Actually our anniversary was last year, but the timing for a trip didn’t work out last year. We just got back from spending several days in Athens, Greece […]
