Fused Glass - Spey Bay

I have been quite busy over the last few days - I have made another free standing piece using the double curve mould. This piece has been fired twice; the first firing to make the coloured strips, the second to create the wave shape.

After the first firing, the strips needed to be cold worked to create a standing piece. This means that I had to grind one edge on each of the pieces in order for them to stand. The rough edges would then be made smooth during the second firing.

I just love these pieces - so simple, but effective. The little bubbles that are created during the firing process just adds a further decorative feature. I love the bubbles.

Look how the light reflects through the glass pieces, this photo was taken away from the window. You can imagine how this would look on a window sill - quite stunning. This three piece is called "Spey Bay" and it will be for sale at the Speyfest event this Saturday.

I have just packed this customer order and sent it off -

One of the bracelets will be going to the other side of the world - Australia. The customer passed on a lovely compliment to me when we spoke on the phone - her daughter was visiting the UK around Christmas time and received one of my dichroic glass pendants as a gift. She then went to a local shop and bought five more. Apparently, she loved my work. These comments are always nice to hear!!

I currently have the kiln on, full of Labyrinth pendants, studs and one-off designs. Will show them off soon.

It's fascinating to see how you make these lovely shapes. Because I like to experiment with photography I love to see the way light shines through the glass and these are certainly making a lovely colourful pattern.

I love your glass creations! They are really very pretty. Do you happen to make glass beads? Just wondering since I make jewelry.
