Capture the Season in Glass

Inspiration
If you mention Thanksgiving to someone, it almost certainly evokes immediate and specific memories and imagery. The themes surrounding Thanksgiving are often tied to autumn colors, bountiful harvests, the iconic turkey, as well as feelings of gratitude and togetherness. And football, let’s not forget the football (Go team!). Decorating for the holidays is a wonderful way to slow down, build the sense of anticipation, and honor traditions. Whether you make a special fused glass serving dish, a glass art garland, swag or wreath to dress your home for the occasion, or a unique centerpiece for your table, glass art lends itself to capturing the imagery of the season in a way that can be enjoyed for years to come. Check out our Pinterest Board to find more examples of art that’s perfect for Thanksgiving, and be sure to share your projects in the Online Artist Gallery . Looking for a free project idea?

@eugeneosentoski You don't how large is the piece? Round? Square? Commercial frame or self-made? GENERALLY, you won't need extra reinforcing but it will depend on the size/shape of the piece and quality of the frame

I am making a copper foiled glass piece that will go into a wooden frame. I will mount the copper foiled glass with 1/4 inch strips of wood that will be tacked to the frame. Will it be necessary to add came around the edges for support or will the wooden sandwich of the frame and the 1/4 in strips be enough support? Thanks.

Top Tools Strip Cutter

by nathan w on January 19, 2019

1 stars
Pros

Cut strips and squares quickly.

Cons

The cutter head doesn't cut in a straight line usually at the beginning of every single cut. cutter head also shits depending on which direction the tool is traveling on the rail. machining is of very poor quality. Binds up and must be taken apart to fix frequently.

Other Thoughts

it could have been an great tool, but its just not doing what its was supposed to.

Pros

Beautiful Color. Should always be capped with clear.

Cons

It fires very thin. It also divitrified during contour fuse.

Other Thoughts

Now that I know the problems, I will continue to use but always cap it with clear. Afraid to use in a casting mold.
