Another gift recently given was to my younger brother. He grows Dahlias in the summer and they are gorgeous.
Living in Wisconsin, these beautiful blooms are only around at his house for a few months each year. With his birthday coming up, I thought I would make him some sun catchers to bring some color to the winter months.
The background was a single sheet of clear glass, with strips of the same glass used as the hanger. The stems were green noodles, the leaves were scraps of transparent green glass, and the flowers were various sizes of glass frit. The project was fired following a Contour Fuse schedule. Quick and easy project with a lovely outcome.
