Fun Votive Candle Holder

Trapezoid Votive

Trapezoid Votive Orange Votive Six sided green Votive

I just recently purchased a Morton Portable Glass Shop and was busy playing with all the different techniques of cutting all the angles. I had some small scraps of colored glass that I cut into trapezoids and rectangles,etc. I didn't want to waste these cute little pieces, so I soldered them together and decorated the corners with bicone crystals. I placed little flower 'feet'on the bottom. I make costume jewelry and have lots of tibet silver charms and things to embellish my votive holders. Hope you like these.

Pink Carousel

by Gregg Wieland
(Minnesota)

I designed and constructed this carousel for a 35 year old women that has been battling breast cancer for 5 years. I gave it to this women for all her efforts in helping others who suffer from breast cancer. There are over 300 pieces of glass. It took almost 5lbs of solder to put it all together. There are two horses and two unicorns on the carousel. It took about a 150 hours to make.

Prarie Lamp

Prarie Lamp

I have made 3 bases and this is the first shade.I used your tutorial all the way and really appreciate your info.The bases are made from white oak and bubinga and took 2 months to construct all 3.This shade took about 2 weeks.

I was very careful about constructing a good jig and it was square as soon as I taped and raised it. It is also important to keep panel side edges clean so all panels join with no gaps.Again thanks for all you do.

My Lampshades

My very first lamp

My very first lamp

My very first lamp

I started with Stained Glass classes every Saturday for about two months, about a year ago. When I had to choose a design to make in my classes, I told my tutor that I cannot event draw a stickman - not one artistic bone in my body, but my husband and I bought a very old house and I wanted Stained Glass lampshades throughout the house. But here in South Africa, Stained Glass lamps are extremely expensive! I needed three of the same design just in my passage and it was just too expensive. So I decided I can do it myself. I am totally addicted to Stained Glass now, I have made so many lamps now already and as soon as one is finished, a friend or family member wants it, needless to say, I am still busy with making lamps for my house. I attach a few lamps I made so far.

Lamp with roses

by Katya
(Russia)

The winter is too long and too distressing. Everything is white, grey and black. And the roses will start flowering only in 5 months or so. I do not like winter, definitely, -3F outside and lots of snow...

This is a birthday gift to a friend of mine to make this long and cold time a bit more colorful and warmer.

3 D CANDLE HOLDERS

fireman candle holder and hippo on a wave candle holder

This a project came by an accident I was wondering if you can do anything in 3 d to me flat prices are nice but I wanted to make something that POPS out at you so I drew my own pattern of a dolphin on a wave and cut it out and started to stack it and it POPPED OUT at me now I make anything 3d for my candle holder these take 3- 4 days to complete depending on the picture and the pieces you have. the base is ( if you can get it) 1/4 inch jelousy glass it usually comes in a long price, so you can get many projects out of one piece. You can always use a piece of mirror glass but it has to be thick. To attatch your design to the glass you can use copper wire the thicker the wire the better but not to thick this will hold your design to the base i cut (2) pieces (tin it) then i place them on an angle from your piece to the base and solder this is foil method and I am self taught and been working in stained glass for 3 yrs. And I love do stained glass I do oil painting and dabble a bit in photography I take pictures of animals I love taking pictures of eagles they are a beautiful bird and I know why they were picked to represent our nation.

3D Box And Lamp

by Sam Dixon
(San Diego)

The 3-D box and lamp were both foiled and completed using the Morton Portable Glass Shop and Assembly Tray.Using this system and as long as you are making straight/angled cuts ,as in this case, there is no grinding required and the learning curve is not too steep.

The first lamp

by Katya
(Russia)

Although I appreciated that choosing a lamp for the second project in the life was not the best idea, I was so encouraged by Sue's detailed lampshade tutorial that I decided to try following all the Sue's advices at each of the steps. It took about a month to complete the panels (during weekends and after the working hours) and about three weeks of waiting for the lamp base and vase cap to arrive from Delphiglass (USPS was fast but Russian customs and post offices were definitely not) but now it's done. Had to mix copper and black patinas (I applied the copper one first and then additionaly covered with black) to get the imitation of the "old copper" - black alone seemed to be too sharp in contrast with the old bronze finish of the base and copper alone appeared too bright. The drawing is not a copy of one's work, I compiled it myself so if someone would like to have it, I would be happy to share.

Sue, thank you so much for the amazing lampshade tutorial - it was the real fun and pleasure to read and to follow :)

Mark's Terrarium

My design was inspired by the Belle Isle Botanical Garden/Anna Scripts Whitcomb Conservatory in Detroit, Michigan. Copper foil and mostly trash picked window glass on a Mahogany base. It's about two foot long. Took most of one winter, I work slow. My solder technique is iffy, but I managed an honorable mention at the Michigan State Fair.

My First Water Prism

by Dustin West
(Fresno, Ca)

Water Prism

Water Prism

Using the instructions off this website (Thank You) I successfuly made this water prism. I didnt have clear silicone as called for in the instructions so I used some blue R.T.V gasket maker.I first tried hot-glue and thought it might work until I cleaned the glass peice and the cleaner instantly got under the glue.I also forgot to add a chain so i just soldered some wire onto each edge at the top. I was surprised it actualy worked because I had to salvage the glass from an old lamp shade and the tips of the triangles where cut off and each one was a different size so I had to grind every one to the same size and instead of 1/4 inch foil I used 7/32 but determination and patience and easy to follow instructions payed off in the end.
So thank you so much for sharing your tutorial on how to make a water prism.
