Portfolio Decorative glass - Wind and wings
Gusting wind and feathery wings adorn this striking piece of glass art. Bubbles and swirls add to the movement. A statement piece that will add interest and beauty to any space.
You can read more about my inspiration for this piece in my blog here.
I recommend that you wash all Glass by Charis by hand.
Glass Size: 9.5" x 10.25"
How it was created: The "Wind and wings" glass art was created by laying a piece Fusers' Reserve green and red swirly glass on the kiln shelf. I topped it with a textured square of clear glass, putting the textured side down. It was then fused in the kiln. The beautiful piece emerged from the kiln covered in bubbles. I added more clear glass three more times. Then I trimmed the piece and added the wings and fired again. The piece was trimmed twice more. More wings were added and fired the final time. This piece was in the kiln six days.
My process often adds bubbles in the glass and no piece is perfectly round or square, adding to its appeal.
Fusing glass, often in several layers, results in items that may seem surprisingly heavy when first unpacked.
