A Ripple Through the Carnival Lamp- Made from two layers of thick 5mm fusible glass from a 10.5" diameter disk. The first layer is a gorgeous royal blue, rainbow iridized glass, followed by a sheet a clear glass. After the final firing, we drill a hole in the base with a diamond drill bit, so it can be mounted on this stunning brushed, nickel lamp base. The lamp is designed specifically for fused glass, so you can remove the shade for cleaning, or interchange shades. We found that a florescent, curled bulb, looks amazing! The sheen and texture on this lamp is just fabulous! This lamp will be shipped in two separate boxes, for only five dollars shipping charged.

Screen Melts Groovy Glass 
          
                                             



 
The Screen Melt Groovy Glass involves a 3-step process. It starts with glass being melted through a stainless steel screen, elevated on ceramic posts, in the kiln. Two colors of Opal Art glass are melted through the screen into a disk of swirled fused glass. The glass is still attached by small tendrils of glass, that are snapped away with one turn from the top. We throw on respirators, eye protection, and blow torch the tendrils back onto the fused glass disk. After designs are traced onto the disk, they are sawed into the shapes, with a diamond-bladed, Taurus 3 glass saw. All of the shapes go back into the kiln, to be fire polished at 1200 degrees. Finally, the 4" sterling silver wire wrap, or .925 sterling bails, are added.
       
After using this process this stainless screen device went back, realizing how dangerous the glass tendrils are, before they are blow- torched. Even though everything on the site is one of a kind, these will truly be the only screen melt batch I create. The sole pendants arrive on a dark brown leather cord necklace. (one of each pendant are available)

Sliced bar Plates involve a 5 step process. It starts with a glass brick being fused from layers of transparent and opal glass dammed between four kiln bricks. That brick if sawed in half and bookended, then fused again. The humped brick is then sawed into thin slices with a round diamond bladed Taurus 3 glass saw. The slices are again bookended together and fused with a piece of clear glass on top. All are very beautiful and never the same and can be used in jewelry and plates.

 The Hawaiian Hieroglyph Platter is " Da kine! " This plate was formed on top of carved clay hieroglyph tiles from Kauai by fusing iridescent glass over transparent Caribbean blue glass. The plate captures the story of  the Polynesian people crossing the ocean full of honu & sea life, to the Hawaiian isles. This platter is "8 by "8 and uses a piece of colored, and a piece of specialty glass.

Saving Sand in a Bottle, that is, a flat bottle! This set was made with powdered .925 sterling silver and copper, fused between clear and blue Caribbean glass. The copper sinks to bottom of the clear glass while the powdered silver fuses between the two, creating the sand in the bottle effect. This set takes you right to the shore. Too bad you can't stick your toes in there!
