‘Wipe-Out on Burleigh’ ………… Fused Glass Art by Jenny Kirwan

Well, this fusing glass art is a learning curve for beginner me, but the more work I do, the more I will discover what works and what doesn’t.  This is OK but not the texture I wanted to achieve at all…..I wanted the boards to be jumping out of the ocean with some 3D texture……so the temperature has to be lowered to do this, but still on a tack fuse……I will know next time!  I think it will frame up pretty much OK though.

“Still Water”

This morning I began a new piece of glass artwork ready to be fired in the kiln this afternoon.  Sea and beach themes I adore, so here is the artwork before it has been put into the kiln.  It depicts a yacht on calm waters with surf boards in the sand, ready for conditions to rough up a little!  I will post the finished artwork when it comes out of the kiln tomorrow…….I would love to be lying on that beach!

This is my latest piece of fused glass art which depicts a rather frantic yacht race on Port Phillip Bay.  It has just gone into the kiln to fire overnight for 14 hours….how exciting as the outcome is uncertain, but keep watching as I will show you the finished piece tomorrow!

Fused Glass Art……………

I have discovered something magnificent that I hope will become part of my future.  It’s called fused glass art and I absolutely love it!  The colours are so vibrant and alive…… Here are my very first attempts at fused glass art.  I have included pictures of before the glass was put into the kiln and another pictures of the finished result.  Not too bad for a first timer……my future looks very bright!  I do hope so!

Rebecca carefully places my four artworks into the kiln to be fired for nine hours!!

Well, Rebecca Ross was the best teacher and I enjoyed every minute of the day I spent with her.  She made me three cups of the best espresso coffee and a lovely lunch outside in the sunshine on her gorgeous decking area.  Her work is beautiful and I just hope my work will eventually be beautiful too……
