Glass Hairy Seahorse

I was asked to make a LUSH  Glass Hairy Seahorse. So here it is:
Glass Hairy Seahorse

The red/pink on the hanging glass seahorse is using gold and the amber is using silver. The metals are sprayed on and fired in the kiln so they sink into the surface of the glass. It's hung using fishing wire, which seems rather appropriate. :) You can see another seahorse here:
Might do a dragon next time....

Glass red rose

Sometime ago I was asked if  I could make a glass red rose in a dome... Well at last I have found some domes  I'm happy with. I ordered them in Birmingham yesterday. When they arrive the first thing I'm going to do is make some roses go in them. This is the rose I was thinking of:

Glass Octopus SEVEN LEGS!

I was in the studio making a Glass Octopus commenting to a group of people about someone I worked with who made them with SIX legs. So what did I do made an OCTOpus in front of all those people with SEVEN legs! :/ Here's a picture of it:

My wife thought I was pulling her leg. :) I bet the Octopus was hopping mad.
