Playing with Glass


There were two different classes that involved playing with class. The first pictured here is Karen Reed's stained glass  --


When I stopped in, only a few projects were ready for their closeups -- but I have some photos of the finished products for a later post.


Echinacea under way. I love the yellow tip of one of the leaves -- a nice use of that piece of glass.


Over in another studio, Susanne Vernon was showing her group how to make mosaics with glass.
There were a number of colorful pieces under construction.


More cone flowers . . . 


and a bright gecko writhing his way across the board . . .


A cheery sunflower . . .  


Swirling colors . . .


Great concentration . . .


The beginning of a peacock feather . . .


                                So many different ideas . . .

There was more than just glass to choose from. . .


Almost done -- the grout will come next. 

And I'll show you the finished pieces in a later post.

Vicki, this looks like great fun. Playing with colour must be good recreation for a mind that is usually busy with words - at least I always find that to be the case.

Lovely. Our WI neighbor does cut glass and made two wonderful lawn medallions for us as a departing gift. She's a periodontist and says the cut glass work is good for her hand precision as well as for relaxation.

Dear Vicki, it's grand to see how each person is adapting the glass techniques to serve his/her own artistry.

Thank you! xo

You definitely got my attention on this one, Vicki! What good students! Of course, I always look at your posts, but this one made me respond, for reasons obvious to you, I'm sure.
