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.
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.
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.
