Fused Glass – Drop Holes – Elegant Fused Glass by Karen


I’ve written about my fused glass drop vases just a few instances. This publish is concerning the a part of the vase I lower off, I name them the Fused Glass “holes”. Most fused glass artists make the edges out of clear and simply toss them however I make your complete piece lovely. Previously I simply lower them up and make jewellery, however that’s a variety of jewellery. Listed below are just a few with the holes lower off and the vases beside them

There are a variety of issues I could make with the Fused Glass “holes”, one factor it is dependent upon is the the scale of the opening. I made a pair into windchimes. I believe it’s a enjoyable approach to make use of them. Some I lower to make it extra distinctive and added decals and the final one I lower in half and added the canes I made.

I appreciated making the Fused Glass “gap” windchimes a lot I made extra chimes, so if you’d like one of many windchime bases however need completely different chimes I can do this simply.

I additionally made just a few mirrors with among the Fused Glass “holes” I just like the mirrors, they are often made to hold or simply sit in a show.

Certainly one of my favourite methods to make use of the smaller Fused Glass “holes” is candle holders or they can be utilized as ikebana vase as properly, it actually is dependent upon the scale of the entire the flower frog has to slot in the bottom.

Certainly one of my favourite methods to make use of the Fused Glass “holes” is to make frames. They are often hung or put into stands.

This piece under is fairly freaking cool. I fused it to a transparent piece of glass then I placed on a bit of steel. Then I can put something on the entrance that I wish to i.e., the flower on the left aspect or a mirror on the appropriate aspect. My concern with making extra like that is the clear needs to be the identical COE and I don’t at all times bear in mind what sort of glass I used.

I’ve one other Fused Glass “gap”, now the onerous half – what do I make with it? The opening is just too huge for a candle holder/vase and either side are lovely. I don’t know the COE is, however wanting on the glass I believe it’s 90. So what do I make with it?

Final query, which do you want greatest; windchime, candle holder, image body, mirror, or do you may have one thing else in thoughts?
