Paint in Glass

I did this mountain scene as a test for fusing schedules to minimize bubbling. Fusing the painted glass separately then fusing and slumping into a final piece was definitely the right formula,  This is the way to go and I look forward to doing a number of pieces using this technique.

Lamps, etc...

They finally came out with a lampshade mold for smaller kilns.  This should prove productive.

Table Done

Between broken plates and broken saws, it is finally done.  Ready in time for Strawberry Days in Glenwood Springs next weekend.

Garden Pansies Birdbath

Since I sold my Clematis & Vines birdbath last week, it is time to replace it for the next show.  I have already cut the glass for the pansies and leaves.  I am going to use a 3/8" tile in a more formal pattern as the surround.  I am showing you more work in progress so no one thinks I am just lazying the summer away.  The replacement bandsaw came yesterday so I can finish the pique assiette table as well.  TOO MUCH to do!
