Finished GOG

I finally finished a GOG piece I've been working on. I learned that if you use Weldbond, it takes FOREVER to dry! I think next time I'll try silicone or something else that dries faster - I waited months for the glue to dry on this. I was pretty generous with my glue usage because I didn't want any problems with grout bleed. Anyway, it's finally done and I'm happy with it!

Wow, those both are just beautiful!!! How long did it take you altogether? Did you use pattern pieces to make it or just created it as it went along?

I love it.

Hi Murraysmom,
Thanks for liking my stuff (that sounds kinda pathetic!) The GOG piece "After the Harvest" probably took 40-50 hours, I'm really not sure. It was based on a painting I did, so all I did was redraw the basic shapes onto a big sheet of paper and tape it to the back of the glass so I had a guide. I figure out the patterns and flow as I go. I like to try and get some movement and texture with glass placement, if that makes any sense.

Ooh, love the picture. I really like the designs you put in the sky and hills. I would have never thought to do something like that, but it really makes the piece.
