More Glass Class Pieces

Here are some more creations from my glass class.  The flower is 8 inches by 4 inches.  I really liked how this turned out.  I think it would be really pretty hanging in a window. Some of the color in the tulip doesn’t show up very well.  It actually showed up way better in this photo than it does in real life.  I’ve thought about adding more color to it and re-firing it, but I’m a bit to nervous to try that.  I like this piece too much already to risk it in the kiln again.

The centers of these pieces was a really pretty red-ish pink color; after firing it turned to brown.  I don’t like these pieces very much.  The brown throws me off.  I’m a huge fan of brown, but not this shade.

I had asked for my pieces to be fully fused.  Well, they came back tack fused.  you can really tell in these two pieces where they look tacked together and not fully melted.

I might have shown these pieces before.  They were first tacked fused and I sent them back to the kiln for a full fuse.  The green one is starting to grow on me a bit.

I love, love this piece, although I can’t take much credit for it. I found the square already like this in the scrap box.  I put a piece of  clear under it and fused it.  I think I will refuse it since again it was just tacked fused.  It makes me want to make pieces like this in the future.

  2. I like that last one as well. When you think about all the mishaps that can happen along the way, any piece that makes it to the end and looks as great as these is really a little miracle, in and of itself!
