Made these in Las Vegas last week

That was alot of fun out there and the class I took was great! I made these but as usual the photo quality is not that great..... The glass vase was using the blue and steel blue on clear. The paper weight was using dichroic and putting bubbles in it on purpose......using clear glass....

Snowing again!!!!!

I love this night light because it just looks like such a happy one (if a night light can look happy). Something about the jagged edges and the light showing through the white of the petals. You can't see the dichro that I used in the center of the flower. But it is there and looks great.

Here again!

Made this paper weight out in Vegas also. It's not a very good picture but it is a flower in side there with a bubble for the center of the flower.

A snowy Monday!

I used up some of the irridized glass that I had on hand for stained glass on this garden bench. Then I used the liquid fusion to seal it to finish it. Liquid fusion really made the colors pop!

Middle of the week!!!!!

The detail in this table top stand is here. The stand is here also. I just love all the color in this piece.....and it's not blue!

This small plate could be a candle holder I love the way that it turned out. Silver was used for the stars. It's sold right away. Did you notice the blue is irridized so it gives off a soft color change.

This second piece was made in Patty Gray's class. I named it "Iris." The Iris is made using black stringers and just kind of made a loose iris. The class was worth it completely...we had sooo... much fun.
The first piece is a platter and made in my studio and totally made by me. It does not show but it is out of irridized glass so there is a irridized color in it. It sold right I did'nt get a great picture before it sold.

Sunday's surprise

Sunshine is trying to peak through between the clouds. Cool but not as cool as it will be later this week! Oh......winter is upon us. Here's a fun twist on a sun catcher. This one is a combination of a fused flower and some lampworked "wonky" beads.
