Framed Glass Piece

Here it is! This is the first chance I have had to put it up onto my blog. I am really impressed with how it has turned out. It is now sitting happily on my living room side table. What do you think?

 

 

Last Thursday I went to another glass workshop where I made a framed piece. I am actually getting quite good at cutting the glass and I must say I am getting more confidence with my designs. Although this could easily become my downfall but time will tell. Maybe one day I will get sooooo good that I will be able to have my own kiln. I would also need a larger house to accommodate the kiln but that is a small technicality.

Glass before the kiln

When it comes out of the kiln it will be glued (with extremely strong glue) onto a lovely dark frame. Each of the three pieces will be kept separate and have a space between but will stay in the same frame. I think this definitely adds another dimension to an otherwise typical picture.

My next glass workshop is to learn to make a bowl so am going to have to start looking around for ideas. If you have any feel free to send them across.
