Fused glass of the week

Here are some fused glass pieces I have been working on. I have been experimenting with fusing pieces of glass to create a block, then slice it with the wet saw. It is hard to see the details in them, but they are turning out well. The piece at the bottom is dull because it was just cut, but it clears up when it goes into the kiln a second time.

my new hat

I crocheted a Sherpa-like hat for those cold winter days. Of course, I finished it the week that the temp is in the 70s. Oh well, Old Man Winter will return.

New stone sculptures in March

I had some time and enough nice weather this last weekend to work on some stone sculptures. I promised one for a fundraiser that is next weekend, so I felt the pressure of getting something finished.

The lighter rabbit is made from a scrap piece of onyx. It turned out better than I expected and plan on making more. I polished it more after I took this photo.
