First Glass on Glass

I hit paydirt the other day at a stained glass shop. A large tub of glass pieces that were going to be tossed! The glass fairy must have been looking out for me. I thought I would try glass on glass pieces in preparation for doing the doors of an entertainment center. At any rate, I certainly had enough stashed glass plates to give it a start. Will have to figure out how to hang it when it's done...haven't thought of that yet. I realize now that I need to learn to CUT the glass, not just nip it to smithereens.

Your nipping looks good to me. That'll be a rosey little number. I especially like your red/black coffee plaque.

That looks great! I love the balance of the design, and that pink glass is scrumptious. Like strawberry ice cream.

Jenel....don't say ice cream...I can feel my hips expanding as I imagine! lol. Thanks too Cal and Slow, it keeps me going when I hear good things. I am still working on my ideas for the background. Wish it were easy, but then it wouldn't be so rewarding.

Thats looking like a pretty good starting point to your career with glass on glass.

Its such a versatile medium. I did some a few years back, in the form of round mandalas,
take a look if you like:
