I took a dichroic glass fusion class from Fusion Glass Company in San Diego last month. It was so much FUN! Using a variety of 90 COE dichroic glass and total freedom to be creative, we built our "potential" pendants. Here's an example of the pieces I chose for my 1st pendant. The black square will be the base.
I used this grinder/polisher to shape the glass.
I rounded down the corners so it wouldn't be
quite so square.
The pieces are all shaped and stacked on top of each other in the pattern and design I chose.
For my second pendant I chose a vibrant orange colored base, some wild glass for the middle and a clear glass top - and again I rounded the corners.
Both pendants are currently in my Sierra kiln. I'm praying that I was able to program it correctly so that it will do all the things it's supposed to do at all the right temperatures.
I'll know in about 6 hours. The suspense is intense (at least for me)!
Stay tuned for pictures of the finished product. Hopefully I will have some beautiful pendants to show you.
