I was recently commissioned to make a large glass dish to match the wallpaper design in a dining room. Here is an example of the wallpaper and below that is my preliminary sketch.
It was a bit tricky getting all the component parts to fit snugly but I used a combination of transparent and opal red glass to get more contrast in the petals. The black poppy seeds are Glassline fusing paint and the dish was slumped into a 30cm square dish mould.

Glassprimitif fused glass birdies, hearts and lightcatchers are now for sale at Fodder in Harrogate!
Fodder is a shop selling and supporting local farmers and rural businesses within Yorkshire and has a lovely cafe serving local foods too. It's just on the corner of The Great Yorkshire Showground and is well worth a visit. I hope you will go and see for yourself (and perhaps buy some groovy glass).

I am absolutely addicted to Pinterest and enjoy browsing for inspirational glass. My favourite board, Glass I Love, showcases mostly hand blown or cast glass rather than fused glass because I have immense respect for glass blowers (and a bit of envy too).
I also use Pinterest to promote and catalogue my own glass and I try to remember to upload every piece of glass I have posted on-line.
