New ways to enjoy my artwork, and they're fun for me to make too. When I started getting my art pieces listed on Etsy and ArtFire, of course I drove around to see what else was selling and at what prices. I found these Scrabble tiles with various images plastered on the front. And immediately I thought "I can do better than that!!!"
So I started experimenting with some little pieces of glass to see what shapes and sizes would make the best little tiles. I heated up several batches over a number of days in my little blueboy kiln, each time, taking them out, wrinkling my forehead and giving them weird, thoughtful faces and then going to cut some more little pieces of glass. Yes, I found the best combination. Makes a beautiful, crystal clear tile, with a few ever-so-tiny bubbles encased, with nice roundy courners and a perfect flat back for an image.
Of course, I was fully stocked with great images, having so many paintings I could choose from, from my collection and my partner's. Plus, with the image tile being so small at just one inch, I could zoom in on my paintings and make multiple tiles from each painting. And each one would be it's own little world.
Please take a look at more, and maybe buy one or two... or three! http://glasssculptureorg.artfire.com/
What do you think? Do you like them? Have other ideas? Something different? Something better?
