Pretty glass scraps looking for a good home!


glass pieces up for grabs!


I have lots of pretty hand painted glass scraps up for grabs for anyone who might have a use for them!

I just completed a large order of lace hearts, I paint off cuts of art glass with patterns based on Honiton lace, bond the paint permanently to the glass in the kiln and then cut out the heart shapes…..this leaves me with lots of pretty scraps. I have no need for these, but they are too pretty to throw away.

SO if you have a good use for these (I am guessing this is one for mosaic artists) then they are yours for free! Just leave a comment to say what you would make with them (and obviously a contact address) and I will choose my fav idea and send them to the recipient, easy as that.

Some of the pieces are very small, mostly they are around 2-3 cm in width, all uneven sizes and because they are glass they are sharp! I have about 1 kg, so it could make a good project!

    My son (age 9) and I make stuff a lot in the school holidays, our latest was a mosaic-topped table out of a cable drum and all kinds of stuff, broken tiles, china, etc. I’d LOVE to make one with your glass – it would look fantastic in a sunny garden!

    My sons on the Autism spectrum and has been seeing an art therapist, he’s starting to get more creative and I’d like to foster that. We’ve made some paper mosaic suncatchers and I think he would love to make a real one.

    I did a stained glass course a couple of years ago and although I loved it I don’t practise nearly enough. So my pressure plan was to make something small for a friend’s wedding in October, nothing too fancy just something that she appreciated because it would be a personal one off. Any painted scraps would be great for that – either as something copper foiled or as a mosaic.

    I live on a 5 acre ‘hobby farm’ where I raise goats and also have llamas and an alpaca. With nearly a hundred trees on the property, some have gone by the wayside and I just have stumps. My plan is to create mosaic covered table tops to place on the stumps for picnics and just enjoying the outdoors. Once done, this would be a great place for travelers to stop and let their kids run off some energy.

    As I am about to embark on engraving practice I am thinking that using your painted scraps as a border and extending the patterns with engraved lines could be a very interesting project.

    Ok, so its all over and I need to choose someone to send this too! BUT how can I choose? As luck would have it, I have found lots of other lovely scraps and nuggets of fused glass which need good homes to go to (like the whole kiln full of Xmas trees that I heated too hot and they all turned into blobs) so if you all email your addresses to I will get a little something lovely in the post to everyone! Only rule is that you send a pic of the finished thing!
    Thanks for entering Amy x
