Fused Glass (In response to Clara's Challenge)

Fused Glass

I had to think long and hard about this challenge. “Let the words be in your writing; let the art be drawn by you; only use embellishments made by your own hands.” I haven’t really drawn much lately. I have been trying to learn calligraphy or some nice lettering, but I’m a long- long way from that. But then I thought of my latest medium of fascination, fused glass. I start by cutting the glass into forms, stacking them, and then I fuse them in a kiln. I have even been making my own glass embellishment. It is always a surprise on exactly how it will look when it comes out of the kiln.
