Mary’s Version of Santa’s WorkshopBy Mary
In the launch announcement I promised a 2016 Holiday Art Glass collection. So today I opened Mary’s version of “Santa’s Workshop” to work on the collection. It always amazes me how many pieces of glass are combined into the creation of each ornament. On average there are about 30-35 small pieces of glass on each 3.5″ tree ornament. Many different shapes and sizes are used for each ornament. Here is the glass assortment for today’s project.
Here are two prototypes of possible tree designs mocked up last week as possibilities.
Clear glass tree shape pieces are cut to use as the base. Below, little blue star millefiori rounds were applied as the tree top stars. Once decorated these overlapping trees shapes will be fused to white glass and slumped into a Christmas plate.
This is the beginnings of the tree ornament collection. The red glass noodles are laid as a “garland” foundation. Glass beads and other details to be added.
Stay in touch for the unveiling of the 2016 Holiday Collection at Mary Sherwood Art Glass! Look for a special give-a-way when the holiday collection goes live.
