Glass Bee With Gold Bits

I made a glass bee with black and gold bits for Steve thebeekeeper from across the valley from the Glassblobbery. I said I would let you see it in the last post, so here it is.

Glass Butterfly on twig

I was asked if I make Glass Butterflies so here is a Glass Butterfly on twig…

The marks on the wings are using a broken old rasp/file. By pressing the glass between two pieces of rasp the lines are pressed in on both sides to create the cross hatching effect. The flowers are sandblasted to give the frosted effect.

I also made a bee for Steve a bee keeper friend from across the valley. I hope to be able to put a picture of that in the next post.
