Paperweight test piece

I've been trying to make heavier pieces - to use as paperweights - and this one hasn't come out too badly.  I used two pieces of square clear glass (cut to size to fit micro size) with small rectangles of colour (2mm COE 90) on top, and fused it on Med until cooked.  It does take longer when it's thicker, but at least the base glass didn't crack this time.

New Collection

I have been experimenting with bits and pieces, different shapes and decals

These are just a few cut up chunks, from reject pieces, that I refired - I love the blue and orange - and think the two colours go well together.

This is fused with red striker, a coral and yellow piece
and a small piece of dichroic glass on top
