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.

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

The 10-panel vintage window survived the trip from Orange, California to the Midwest.  It’s a pretty big window at 5′ x 2′ ft … which meant this piece would take a huge bite out of my vintage glass collection.

The vintage windows I look for have to be sturdy, with clear glass that doesn’t wiggle or show separation (rotting)  from the frame … not even a little bit.

I use a clear adhesive to glue the glass to the glass, in a well ventilated room, with a wheeled tile cutter, a small hammer – on a sturdy surface – wearing safety glasses with a first aid kit near by … but not children or pets.  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.

Clean the window with a vinegar & water mixture – a couple of times – and let it dry.  Glue glass pieces into place filling in with cut glass pieces, clear glass gems, marbles and the like …

a creative process … or not

Thank, gawd, some things never change.

No resolutions this year … although … I did promise that I would try to find more time to play artist.

I cleaned off my tile table, found a glue bottle that worked, and will admit to feeling fairly confident that something fantastic was about to happen.

Standing there  … I got nuthin’ … nope, nuthin’ … still standing there, starring out into space … a few minutes go by …  nothing, nothing, nothing … not gonna happen … not even if you think really, really hard squeezing your eyes together.

We’re sorry all circuits are busy doing other things right now … Please try again later.

It’s all good. There’s always laundry to do. 😉

Peace!
