Welcome to my Blog. I am always trying to find new and unique ways to express myself through my glass. My work has evolved into my favorite item; pet cremation remembrance pendants. This is where I permanently fuse ashes between layers of glass. My most recent creation is my sepia - pictures in glass, where I take a picture and fuse it into glass. I have also done a few remembrance items with people's ashes which turned out amazing.

My glass can be purchased on either of my two websites

What I'm working on

October is just around the corner and I'll be selling my fused glass at the McQueen craft fair.  I'm still trying to work on perfecting colored bubbles in glass.  I've made a couple fused glass night lights and platters but I have a little more work to do before I'm happy with them. 

The picture above shows one of my sample pieces with bubbles in it. I fused 16 test pieces and this one was my favorite.  I hope to perfect the bubbles and eventually sell it.  For now, I'm just trying to get it exactly how I want it. I've probably tried 40 pieces and several kilns full of glass to get it how I want it.  I've made a couple of night lights with several colors but the bubbles weren't as big as I wanted so I'm still going to make some more.

I was very busy today and was able to start both kilns today.  My small kiln has some pendants that I tried my newest bubble mixture in, so I'll see tomorrow if they turned out.  I also started my larger kiln this evening and it has a beautiful green platter as well as a  beautiful burnt red pet memory picture frame for a friend of mine.  Not sure if the picture frame will turn out because the paper I use to keep the glass separated for the picture to go in, might not come out from the glass.  Last time I fused the green frame, it was extremely difficult to get the paper out. After 30 minutes, I finally did it, but I could reach the bottom of where the paper was. That's because it only went down about 4".  The burnt red frame will have a space for a 5 x 7 picture to go in, which means it goes down 7".  It will be a shame if it doesn't come out because of how long it took me to make it.

I am also making some more of my mosaic pendants. They're in the kiln and it's my 2nd time firing.  I have 1-2 more times to fuse in the kiln before I can call them pendants, but I have some new colors and so far they look really beautiful.

I'll post some more pictures when I have them.

Pet Memory Cremains Photo Wall Hanging

I just finished my first pet memory wall hanging.  It measures approximately 10" wide x  7" long.  I took a translucent green glass for the base and fused a clear piece on top so you can see the 4" x 6"picture clearly.  I sprinkled some dichroic pieces around the picture as well as fusing two etched dichroic cats at the top.  My pet ashes are shaped into a heart just below the picture.

To finish it off, I took some picture hanging wire to give it some strength and put a couple of beads on the wire.

I'm very happy how it turned out.  I have listed a custom made picture frame on both of my websites if you are interested.

Platter featured in Culture Magazine

This beautiful blue platter is my first item featured in a magazine so I wanted to share it.  Although the price was listed wrong, it was still amazing to be featured in this wonderful magazine. I hope it inspires you if you are another fused glass artist. 

This one has already been sold, but if you want one made to your specifications, I would love to make another one.
