Red coral wall piece, this fused glass artwork of transparent reds with black accents looks like it washed up on the beach. The flat bowl shape stands just off the wall so that ambient light makes it glow from behind. It would shimmer with an added halogen fixture.
This piece was commissioned to hang in a home here in Costa Rica.
This 14″ black glass platter sold at the Friday market in Samara recently. Made up of glass, copper inserts, and high temperature paint, it’s on it’s way to a home in nearby Punta Islita. I didn’t get the buyer’s name, from Albany, Oregon, but I thank you for your support .
I’m running late this year but I’ve just finished some new Christmas Tree Ornaments.
The wreaths are about 3 1/2″ diameter.
The snowflake is 4 1/4″ diameter.
All ornaments are $10.00 each. I’m taking orders now for delivery on Monday 12th in central Samara. Email or call me.
When I make mistakes in fused glass pieces, I break them up and re-fire them into “puddles”.
Lately, I’ve been wire-wrapping them as earrings and pendants.
My friend, Connie – she is great with beads and beading – helped me enhance these pendants with beaded ropes for necklaces.
