Fused Glass Geisha

Are these not so cute! I miss playing in the barn with my glass but seems I can not do it all 😦

Looking At Glass

Today I am looking at Fused Glass Geisha Diffuser/Bud Vases.

I am at High Point Fall Market and as with previous trips, I am in heaven.  Yesterday, I spotted these adorable Fused Glass Geisha Diffuser/Bud Vases at Global Views.  Actually, I forgot that I was in a showroom when I saw them and I may have squealed slightly a little bit loudly when I saw them.  Once again, proving my ability to act like a complete professional in public places.

There are 4 different Fused Glass Geishas.  Each one represents a different season; Summer, Spring, Winter, and Autumn.

dimensions: 4.5″L x 2.75″W x 9.5″H

I’ll share more High Point Market finds with you soon!

See what I mean!

If you stopped by you would think I was wouldn’t you?

I am just craft and I recycle and no not from MY KITCHEN lol I stole these from the local landfill these are perfectly good bottles!

I will cut them up and use in other ways.  Candle holders, drinking glasses, bust some that may not cut perfectly and throw them into the kiln and see what I can make out of the warm glass.

I can do so many things with them  I can break them and place in my rock tumbler to get them smooth and wrap in silver wire and added to a pair of ear wires or on a wind chime.
So many possibilities for these rescued bottles do you recycle and make pretty things with them.  Like a soup can you can punch a heart design on it with a nail and add a candle in the bottom just a tea light will do and place out where you have you glass of wine on a hot night under the stars.

Follow me on Pinterest I have Pinned a few ideas there YOU?

So if you stop by  don’t expect me to have a bottle chilling in the refrigerator or  wine cellar  just piles of empties to get off my butt and make something pretty with.

These are made from glass,  I fuse in a kiln then drill then embellish and add earwires and get them ready for sales.  3 of these already have a new home she will have her pick since she placed a special order for her Christmas list

Let me introduce myself.

HI

My name is Eunice and I live in southern New Hampshire.

I am in a Master Beading Program where I am still an apprentice after 1 year.  So much to learn.  I have been learning how to do Peyote, Spiral and Herringbone stitches, which I use in earrings, necklaces and bracelets.   I also make eyeglass lanyard using a technique known as Kumihimo .  This is an ancient Japanese beading technique done with cord and your choice of beads.(I will be adding photos of projects I have finished  to give you an idea of where I am at with designing)

I also love melting(fusing)glass in my kiln.  I use fuse-able glass as well as Dicrohic   Glass.  I also own a torch and love taking a glass rod and mandrel heating them in a flame and watching the glass wrap around the mandrel and forming my own glass bead.  I can decorate it with the use of stringers and frit.  Stringers are very thin rods of glass and Frit  is crushed glass I can roll a hot piece of glass in to pick up different colors as well as texture.  I love my time in the barn where I do this work.

I am also in love with photographing life around me.  I always have been but have just started sharing with others.

OK now for a real surprise for those who do not know me.  I am an injured Tractor Trailer Driver/Owner.  I have been  driving big rigs since the late 70’s when it was really unheard of to see a young female behind the wheel of a Big Rig.  I have traveled  across this country of ours and have so many fond memories of life on the road as well as years I spent hauling goods, all over New England.  I was hurt in an auto accident in 2000 which has since taken the ability to drive a rig for 15 hours

a day so I had to find something to keep myself busy and happy,  as I was a complete mess  after being told my trucking days were over.  It was who I was, now what?   So I went back to my roots.  I always loved crafting and art in all forms.   So as I learn this BLOGGING I hope to show you what I love through my photos and words.  Feel free to comment or follow me as I really do want to get better at all I attempt to do.

Thanks again

Eunice
