Christmas is about colourful trees and gifts. So I embarked on designing some colourful kiln formed decorations which would make affordable and unique gifts for relatives, friends or colleagues.
I first cut the shape out into a bird, a heart or a bauble and stencil some glass powder to add some vivid colour. I fully fuse the decorations or tack fuse them -to a lower temperature 710 degrees C so that the powder does not fully fuse to the glass shape- to give them a textured look.
Finally, I drill a hole and thread a ribbon through for hanging. Every decoration is presenting in a rustic kraft gift box ready to be given and received! JOYEUX NOËL!
This Blog aims to share my passion for kiln formed glass as I explore the limitless possibilities of design and technique the medium offers.
