The vintage window was a gift from my sister friend, Tilly Evan Jones … it sat around for a couple of years waiting and wanting. Finally glued a bunch of my vintage glass collection to it.
All you need is a sturdy window (or frame) with good glass, wheeled glass nippers, small hammer, hand towel, safety glasses, random glass objects and e6000 adhesive. This project must be glued in a well ventilated area … without the kids and pets.
Break glass dishes under a dish towel with a small hammer and gentle hand or use wheeled glass nippers to break up glass objects.
FYI … There are glass plates that will shatter into a BAZILLION PIECES without warning so … don’t be … going to use the word stupid – because it really is … ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES when cutting glass or tile and do a different project with the kids.
The shop was closed, again, so Renee knocked on the side door and said, “we’ve been here before … you were closed and we see that you’re closed again but … I just have to have one of the pieces in the front window … can we please come in?
They were both like little kids in a candy store and then Renee said, “I must have a piece of your art because I can feel all of the love and the light shining through.” Me too.
Touched beyond belief and all I can say is that this big beautiful universe, wearing a straw hat, is hard at work on my behalf.
Trying to organize the studio and decided that if I just glue everything to something else, it will take up less room.
This is what happened in April.
Glass on Glass – “Any Which Way”
Recycled Art – Vintage China & Glass
Trunk up for Good Luck!
Somehow these 3 vintage plates ended up together, along with a crystal candlestick and 2 glass bud vases. Think the snack pics added a nice touch. Sort of a Mackenzie Childs vibe … may have to keep this one.
Finally finished a glass on glass window, that I glued a ceramic tile to 6 years ago, and she ended up as the “Goddess of the Boobies”
and …. these 4 little pieces just screamed to be stuck together. For eternity. Unless you drop it.
