New Fused Glass Panels

I am currently working on a set of (7) 10″w x 38″h glass panels for a residence in Florida. With this project, I am not only figuring out firing schedules for the new kiln, but I am also learning new techniques in using glass paints. I have dabbled with silk screening on glass and have also tested out a few different types and brands of glass paints. I discovered Colors For Earth Paints just before I took on this project. Having never used these paints before, this was the perfect opportunity to test them out.

The customer was looking for a set of panels to be installed in the stairwell of her home. She wanted a specific color palette, and also wanted to have the design have an organic look to it. The photo she sent me reminded me of polished natural stone. I needed to figure out how to replicate this on glass. I debated using powdered frits, airbrushing (which I have never done), and hand painting. I decided to give the CFE paints a try and I was very pleased with the results.

I made a small test piece (which I ended up turning into a piece of framed art for my own home) to try out this new technique. It took several firings, but I managed to mimic the look the customer was looking for.

As of now, I have 5 panels completed with 2 more to go. I will add pictures as I finish them. And HOPEFULLY I will have a picture to post of all of the panels installed in their new home.

Ocean Waves Fused Glass Wall Art

This set of glass waves is stunning! It includes a center wave that is the focal piece that is wider than the other waves and has beautiful crushed glass down the center in sea green, turquoise and Caribbean blue. The outer waves include 2 turquoise blue transparent waves and 2 turquoise blue (a tad darker than the transparent ones) that have been sandblasted to resemble sea glass. The center wave measures 4.5″W x 18″ long. The outer waves measure 3″ W x 18″L. Each wave has a clear sawtooth hanger mounted to the back for easy hanging. Purchase it here or check out more of our art.
