Fused Glass from Tropics of Costa Rica

Washed in from the sea?

 

a DSCF6860

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.

Powdered Light

fused glass recycled glass

Here’s a recent result (11″ platter) of the technique I  studied with Susan Murphy at Cascade Art Center in Redmond, WA.  I’m experimenting with float (window) glass because I can recycle it from local construction projects.  sifting powdered glass through a stencil allows me to add color, which up to now has been difficult.

Another morning well spent

Four ladies filled the glass studio this morning with laughter and artistic inspiration.  And they filled the kiln, as well.  Can’t wait to see how these candle holders turn out.
