Make this 6x6" desert landscape with me, using fused glass sheets, stringers, frit, dichroic glass, and glass confetti.
Desert landscapes are so inspiring to me. I love the colors, I love the shapes of cactus, I love how it's so different from anything I saw growing up in New Jersey.
I wanted to create a fused glass desert landscape to experiment with some frit techniques, as well as brush up on my stringer bending skills. I really love the texture that clear stringers can add to a piece without changing the colors.
The stringer tumbleweeds didn't turn out exactly how I was imagining, but that's all part of the learning process! Overall I'm very happy with how this piece came out, and am looking forward to making more for a whole desert landscape series.
