It has finally arrived!!!!! I actually feel really, really good about a piece! The picture doesn't do it justice, I promise.
This is a larger wall piece done in Bullseye clear, opals and frit glass. It was created under the study of Donna Serafis* at Dancing Light Fused Glass Art Studio.
*"Autumn Pathways" is an interpretative artwork completed during a Dancing Light Fused Glass Art Studios workshop-October 2011.

After nearly 2 months of work, I have finally finished the antique washstand. I completed the fused bowl first and then worked the glass and ceramic design around the basin theme. It is all that I first imagined when I saw it tucked away in the dusty corner of the antique store. It does amaze me sometime how our mind's eye can see what can become with a little creativity, hard work and love.

My organic slump mold from Creative Paradise finally arrived and the results are just--WOW! I knew I had to have it when I saw it in Vegas. I used bejeweled frit mix, vitigraph stringers, millefiori and iridized frit for the flowers. This is a donated piece for the local CEC chapter for their spring fundraiser.

This week I completed a 4 piece place setting of Japanese Sushi dinner plates and rice bowls with matching chopsticks. Each plate is banded in differing warm colors and all included a cyan/red dichroic swirl. These were done using Sys96 glass and Slumpy's Jumping Jill splash molds.

I always try and keep the good memories about a place with me when I go. I miss my three deer who would bed down in the zoysia grass under the oak grove, the majestic Texas oak tree with the swing in the front yard and my prolific clematis vines forever weaving through the horse fence along the drive. I did this triptych to try and capture those images in glass.
The piece was done through multiple firings, building layers of glass to create depth and dimension. I assembled over 150 pieces for each of the three panels. The base layer was create at a full fuse, including the tree, swing, fence and millefiori ground. I then fired the vines to a tack fuse using stringers made from vitrigraph. Finally, the flowers, made from cut glass, powder and stringers, were added to the vines and re-fused to a contour fuse to create the soft rounded edges. Here's to the celebration of spring!
This piece has been entered into the Glass Art Festival at Delphi Glass at http://www.delphiglass.com/gallery/store_viewItem?gid=11720. It also hangs in the Gallery 809 in Glenwood Springs, CO.

I love working with photo fusing paper. I used photo fusing paper to build the backdrop for the frit painting. After 4 firings, it came out really well. I love the texture of the frit when it is taken to a tack/contour fuse before slumping.

A return to mosaics--A pique assiette antique red table with two finished platforms in roosters and feathers. The color scheme is red, green and yellows with ceramic roosters, daisies and glass beetle embellishments. It was finished in ivory grout. This was done for a mosaic challenge with Etsy's PeaceMaker's Mosaics Team.
