Blues and greens, fused glass suncatchers
Fusing glass is melting it in a kiln. For these suncatchers, I try and use up all my scrap glass along with some glass powder and frit colours to capture the mood I want to convey. Suncatchers are great as glass really is at its best when hung in the window where it can catch the light. These are simple designs but as the light outside changes so do the colours and the layers of colour really come into their own. They are also beautiful hung in the garden. (as long as they are not hung where the wind will knock them into something hard that will smash them. Although. like most fused glass, they are quite tough, they are still made of breakable glass).

I use up all my scraps of glass making these gorgeous, cheerful suncatchers. The design is deliberately a little boho and abstract. I can never make any two the same, so the one you receive will not be quite the same as the images show. They really are all one-offs. These suncatchers can also be used as mobiles. They can be hung in a window, ideally, where they will catch the sun and be reflected inside, Or they can be hung as a mobile inside the room. The colours are strong enough to be beautiful even away from the light. This blues and greens suncatcher reminds me of walking in the rolling hills near Dunton Bassett with summer blue skies. I have some fond memories, and this can remind you of your favourite English summer saunters too.
And what about trying them out as garden decoration? They are sturdy enough as long as they don’t get blown onto hard slabs in the winds. They would catch the light beautifully in the garden and blend in with the green and the blue sky. I’m going to give it a try. Please send me a photo of where you hang your new suncatcher.
