|Creations Gail brought along for her presentation.|
|Kitchen vignette with pots on old stove, glass jug jars on shelf above it,|
and pans and measuring cups hanging nearby
|Old gumball machine filled with childhood|
collection of bouncy balls
|Bicycle wheel trellis for climbers, birdhouse and bird bath,|
for feathered friends, and metal gardening gal dress up
garden shed behin.
|Old window frames made into church in foreground and|
trellis for climbers in background.
(Church window made of old lace doily.)
|she used bowling pings for this piece.|
|2 candlesticks connected to create stand|
for sphere made of 2 glass globes covered
with glass mosaic.
|Old metal Christmas tree stands stacked|
to create a unique Christmas tree
|Old shovel blades used to create a large flower in the garden.|
|Gail used a hammer dirll and masonry bit to drill through each rock and|
then threaded them onto a sturdy metal pole. She noted that rebar is not
sturdy enough to hold the rocks vertical, but will bend under the weight...
|..but rebar is good choice to create a windblown bottle tree.|
allowing bottles to sway in the breeze.
|Gail's sister's glass bottle wall|
|Glass art butterfly|
|Flowers made of glass plates and bowls can be glued on old windows.|
as an alternative to stacking and gluing them to construct totems.
Gail recommends glass pieces be glued together using:
- Amazing Goop Household/Hogar (try Menards)
- E6000 (has strong smell, so should be used in a well-ventilated area)
She does not recommend leaving glass creations out in the winter where collecting water can do damage as it freezes and thaws.
