This fused glass wavy strips plate in orange and brown was created by full fusing the wavy strips first. The frame was then built around it in three layers with the orange detail sandwiched in the middle. This was full fused one more time to fuse the frame to the center strips. The edges were coldworked using a tile saw and a wet belt sander. Finally, the piece was slumped into its final form.
Fused glass black and white layered triangles create depth in this modern, functional or decorative plate. The triangles were first full fused onto a layer of clear glass. This was then layered on top of the red glass for a 3D effect. The circle detail was added last using course frit in clear, black and white. Edges were coldworked using a tile saw and a wet belt sander.
This fun black and white fused glass plate was made using the stacked construction method. Black and white glass squares were layered on top of a clear base and full fused. The edge detail was created with a tile saw and finished with a wet belt sander for a polished look.
This fused glass bowl inspired by coral was created by first fusing the blue and green strips into an open pattern. The open spaces were then filled in with clear frit and translucent turquoise and spring green frit and full fused a second time. The edges were smoothed with diamond hand pads and polished with a wet belt sander. A slump firing formed the piece into the bowl shape.
This draped blue and orange fused glass art piece can be used as a mini vase or a tea light holder. A tea light or candle inside casts color stipes. Made from orange, blue and clear strips of glass, it was first full fused into one, square piece and then draped over a floral former to create the organic shape.
I love making functional, fused glass art and this green and orange fused glass spoon rest is just that. I have made a few versions of this design and my husband and I use ours every day. Colored glass strips were full fused into one piece and then slumped into the spoon rest form.
