This is a throw-back to many years ago. I learned how to fuse glass in a kiln when I was living in Hawaii. I used to own several kilns, and had a lot of fun with it. I used to make panels in my kiln, abstract panels…where I’d put fun colors of glass together and then fuse them. The picture below is one of them.
I made the angel by dusting black frit on a white piece of glass. Then I’d use a pointy stick to draw in it and sketch out an angel. I’d add words to my composition because I love words and love to add them to my art! So..this is a fairly large fused glass panel..about 18 inches long.
Then, I’d mount them to shadow boxes that are easy to hang! The one in the picture is one I made for a friend a long time ago. Somehow, the frame was damaged and my friend wanted to salvage the glass panel!! Easy! I took the panel, added some crushed glass around it and mounted it on a painted canvas! Resin holds it all together! Voila! I love it the second time around!
