Glass Dragon on a rock

I've been working at a dragon on a rock. It's turned out really well. I found the rock in a local stream, put it through the dishwasher and made a dragon to go on it... Great fun. Wendy's colors work very well by enhancing the form. Here's a picture of it:

What do you get if you cross a tiger with a sheep?
A stripey sweater!

Hope you like them? Might do a dragon next time....

Its great in that you can heat the glass in a microwave. You can see the kit at If you know anybody who would be interested in the kit you're welcome to share this post :

Glass Sea Horses

I did two giraffes the other day on face book so I thought I would do another couple of creatures... Glass Seahorses.

Two Glass Seahorses

The blue colour comes from cobalt oxide, the pink is gold oxide and the light green is chrome oxide. Each metal requires firing at its own temperature so the process can take up-to a fortnight!

Check out our shop page:

Here are a couple of giraffes! The amber color is added by using silver oxide. and the black/brown spots are lamp lacquer hand painted after 2 firings. The lamp lacquer is cured on to the surface of the glass after its brush application.
