The Lure of Glass

Glass is a medium that defies (my) comprehension. It is not a soft medium that begs to be touched – although I have to touch it when I see it to see if it really is as smooth and glossy as it looks. But I’m just a tactile kinda gal.

Its the colors and the depth, like hidden universes are floating in it. Amazing!

So, here are the glass pieces from our first glass fusing class (well, first for me, DH has done this before). The rectangular blue pieces pictured at the top are mine (click to biggy-ize). Two of them are about 2-1/4″ x 2-3/4″ and the dark blue one is about 2″ x 3″. I had water in mind when I created these – and to use them to embellish a quilt. I figured if I made three attempts, at least one would be acceptable. I like them all! They have all had the corners drilled and are back in the kiln for a final fire polish.

The five cabochons (or gems) above are Jack’s pieces. His average about 1-1/4″ square are are perfect for pendants.

I can’t wait to see our we figure out how to hang them; wire wrapping? Hummmm.

A perk – if your feeling in a rut with your artwork, try a new medium – it’s amazing how well it will shake things up. 🙂

I got a few other things done this week too. I finally got all my books left from my (now closed) Fiber Art Supply business loaded up on Amazon.com, if you want to see what I have still available, check it out.

I also made a new banner for my Etsy store and added a few more items.

The weather is lovely, I moved some pots into the greenhouse for when it’s actually warm enough for things to start popping up (a bit earlier than if left on the porch) and tomorrow is work at the Yarn Shop day.

Gee, life is tough.

    1. Thanks Kim! I think it’s a bit of “lack of focus”, but I do like so many different things. My SIL calls it ADD, I say it’s just a creative mind. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
