Quilting a tremendous artwork type that I consider is particular and delightful and I wished a one in every of her quilts badly for a very long time.
She was taking a look at my web site and stated she likes my fused glass paintings and would love a flower dish that I display printed. I instructed her she may have something she preferred – I’d commerce glass work for one in every of her small quilts. I’m so completely happy she agreed. That is the bowl she noticed that she wished.
I made her 2 further screen-printed display fused glass dishes. The primary one is screen-printed purple poppies on clear glass and is fairly massive. The second is purple poppies on white glass. I’m unsure which she’ll like finest, however they’re each lovely.
You possibly can’t use the display too many occasions, however I additionally made a small poppy dish for my exhibits. I believe it’s fairly good.
Listed here are the 2 dragonflies’ fused glass dishes I made. I made her two as a result of I wasn’t positive if she wished the iridized up or down, so I made each. They’re beautiful.
In the event you comply with me, after I make customized glass items, I usually make extra for my shops or exhibits. This was no exception. I made just a few extra textured dishes. First, I made small dishes to assist me determine which appears higher, the iridized up and iridized down, on dishes. I want the photographs present the feel higher, you may see it in individual.
