Took a photo of the finished piece, propped it in a window and the wind blew it over and smashed it into a million pieces.

The End.

Just Needs a Little Light

Used a simple 8 x 10 white picture frame from Ikea … glued the piece of glass into the frame (with Weldbond) and let it dry overnight.

The little glass fish dish was the catalyst … the rest of the glass pieces were magically glued into place with Clear e6000 adhesive.

Doesn’t look like much but …. In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. ~Aaron Rose

Shadows only mean that there is light nearby. Go to the light …

Feeling very accomplished this week. All is good.

as always … work in a well ventilated room when using toxic adhesives and always wear safety glasses when working with glass!

Glass on Glass Vintage Window Project #2

Found this 10-panel vintage window in Orange, California and was grateful that it survived the trip back to the Midwest. It’s a big window at 5′ feet x 2′ feet and took quite a bite out of my vintage glass collection. When I select vintage windows for glass on glass window projects, I look for a really sturdy window frame with good, hopefully heavier glass that doesn’t wiggle .. not even a little bit. This window was very sturdy, the glass was awesome and it had really cool hinges that I left alone.

I used E6000 Clear Adhesive to glue the glass to the glass, in a well ventilated room, and used a wheeled tile cutter to cut smaller pieces of glass, while wearing safety glasses with a first aid kit near by.  Safety First – Always wear safety glasses when breaking or cutting random glass dishes, cups and/or glass objects. Depending on the type of glass they can and some will shatter in a bazillion pieces … maybe more. Be careful.

This window was probably hung the wide way over an old store front somewhere.

First, I cleaned the entire window with a vinegar & water mixture and let it dry. Started to cut the glass pieces for fill in and laid out a first pass design. Made the decision to not glue it down during the design. Shoulda.

You don't find inspiration. It finds you.

The universe is very good to me and next time … I’m going to call all my angels and trust myself to glue the glass pieces on my first pass.

Perfect first pass and not a single piece glued.
