Fused Glass Hearts – a personalized gift

IMG_3610 IMG_3613 IMG_3690One of the great things about doing commission art is you get ideas from folks who know what they want but need helpd making the idea become a reality.  The idea for these fused glass hearts came from a client who wanted a unique gift for an engagement party.

 

The hearts are shaped from a piece of hand raked glass so no two are alike.  The swirling colors look fabulous with  or without back light.  They are finished with a low tarnish artist’s wire hanging loop, an Indonesian silver bead and matching bow.

 

 

 

They can hang against a wall, in front of a window, from a light or even outdoors from a tree.IMG_3520  Wherever you decide to hang one of these hearts, it will surely draw the eye.

 

 

They are personalized with a short message or pair of names which I write by hand on the glass using high temperture fired gold or platinum.  Once the glass is refired, the writing is permanent.  What a great way to tell someone what is in your heart.
