Hot Conversation

She:
Hi, I'm a glass fuser, and think this could be the MOST EXCITING WAY to stimulate my creativity and translate what I draw to warm glass kiln art.....Wow, I am so ready to start...and being housebound w/a foot injury has morphed into a plus! Thank you, Janis Piper

We:
Hi Janis,

Just saw your comment on your order. We look forward to seeing pictures!

Thanks again for your order.

Best,  Rick (and Maria)

She:
Hi Maria and Rick, this has taken me 4+ months to acheive, but here it is....a tangle made with 100% fused glass. It is small, 7" x 10", on white Bullseye c.o.e. 90 glass. The tangle is drawn with cobalt blue powdered frit (glass, consistancy of confectioners sugar) with clear and irid. fine and medium on first layer, then shading and deeper tangerine color on second layer, then more fine and medium clear frit...finished by cold working with lap grinder on all edges. Whew! This was fused 2 times at 1490 degrees, has marvelous depth.

Look for more, as I love the simplicity and movement of so many of the tangle patterns, and can't wait to go on to the next venture!

Thank you for making this a possibility, Janis Piper



We:
Hi Janis,

Very cool! May we put this in our blog?

Best,  Rick (and Maria)

She:
Wow...! Sure, why not? I don't have a website, but I do have a Facebook artists page: Kilnwerks Fused Glass by Janis Piper and an email in case anyone has questions on "how to do" it.

Many thanks, Janis

Janis' beautiful Zentangle Inspired glass creation uses betweed as its primary tangle. You can read instructions on how to create betweed here and watch a YouTube demonstration here.

Thank you sending that, Janis!

This is lovely Janis! It proves you can tangle on just about anything, as long as it isn't moving too fast. I'm looking forward to seeing your next piece.

You know I have often wondered how Zentangle would translate to glass - perhaps stained glass leadlighting. Now I know - AMAZING!! Well done Janis! love it love it love it.
