Branching Out

It's here, it's here. I recently traveled to Texas to try my hand at painting with glass under the instruction of Donna Sarafis of Dancing Light Fused Glass ( The finished piece arrived today unscathed, I’m very proud of finished piece, not bad for a first try.  This marks the start of my transition from functional pieces to fine art pieces. I’m not saying I’ll never make another plate, I will, but I’m excited about this new glass avenue.

The piece measures 21" x 13", was made from bullseye frit and sheet glass, and fired twice.  The first fire was to full fuse the second was a tack fuse leaving lots of great texture.
