Glass experiments

I've been playing a bit with fused glass lately. It's really fun to manipulate the glass. I like it, but because of the quality of the glass needed, it means I don't get to play with recycled glass, which I would like more. Not to mention it's quite clear, my tastes run expensive.
Above is an example I was learning to work with a glass pattern bar. You create a bar of glass, and then slice it and reassemble it... It reminds me of building & then using fimo/sculpy canes. I added a little bit of random to the piece above, which I like. I then sandblasted the back to make it frosted looking... That is cool!! Add a sandblaster to my dream tool list. along with a Kiln, and a tile cutter.
