This has nothing to do with glass but is too breathe taking not to post!

Klimt's After "THE KISS" in Stained Glass

Such a delight to make. The main glass in the man's gown was only made once a year by Uroboros for the Tiffany peacock lamp, so it was always rather rare. I loved it so I bought it years ago and saved it for something special. As it turned out Uroboros stopped producing this glass about 8 years ago! The rust background is hand poured antique glass, not often found any longer either. The circles ad purple in his gown are Bullseye glass and extremely expensive as the purple and fuschia are made with gold salts.

The piece still needs to be framed so I have not listed it yet. I'll enjoy having it awhile!

My Idea of Window Treatment!

For years I have loved windows with small squares around the perimeter of the clear glass. You don't see them often any more. I have wanted to make them but could never figure out how to adhere them. Now I have found a way to do it with double sided clear tape, permitting one to remove them later down the road. For those who want to permanently adhere them to the glass, Loctite has come out with a glass glue that cures in 15 seconds ( maybe a few more). In an age when curtains are no longer in vogue these fused glass squares of my design really jazz up a room, throwing beautiful colors around the room and they are beautiful from the inside at night as they are iridescent and the outside. They are now for sale in my Etsy store in an array of beautiful colors. The glasses I fused in these first sets are among the most beautiful and expensive, purple and pink being made with gold salts.

 Beloved by many cultures, she has been called by countless names - Isis, Venus, Athena, Pele, Changing Woman. Her titles included Queen of Heaven, Mistress of the Animals, Our Lady, Holy Mother and Mother of God. She was celebrated as Wheat, Rice, Sun, Moon and Morning Star. Spirals represent birth and rebirth, knowing and becoming. This Moon Goddess and the spiral forms represent the creative energy that directs and holds life together.

 The Crone represents wisdom, repose, death, and endings represented by the waning moon.

In a very real and meaningful way, you will connect with the Goddess and her gifts of wisdom, healing, transformation, creativity and strength. What you discover will empower you in your daily life, inspire your creative work and support your spiritual path.

She gives healing, inspiration, strength and comfort. The Goddess Within, The Goddess speaks through all women. Reconnect with your own inner Goddess. Empower yourself spiritually, physically and emotionally, and set yourself free!
