This thick, fused glass tea light holder is functional as well as a beautiful work of art. After the piece has cooled, it is sandblasted to give it a frosted finish making the colors even more vibrant. It is beautiful as decorative art piece, a center piece to float a flower or a candle in at a table setting, jewelry dish, candy dish and so much more.

Dimensions: 3.5 x 3.5 x 2.5 inches

These fused glass candle holders reflect my love for the ocean and its wonders.

To create a tulip candleholder bowl I first cut 2 glasses of same size. Then I clean each square very carefully if I do not clean them well, then grease will appear in the final fused glass piece. I put 2 squares one on top of the other that later in the kiln and because of hit will join together. The following step is to sprinkle glass powders on top of them.

A kiln is used to make the glass molten and to join two or more pieces of glass. The glasses inside the kiln arrive to a temperature of about 1450 Fahrenheit. As glass heats up, it expands and when it cools down it contracts. The pace at which it expands can be measured. Distinct glass expands and contracts at various rates. When glass is heated, it softens and if more heat is applied, it begins to melt and flow. When heated further, they will melt together, flatten out, and become one solid piece of glass.

Once the first firing called full fused is finished I remove the fused piece, have a look at it and if I’m happy with it I then positioned the new strong piece of glass on top of a mold and placed back into the kiln and heated up to where they slump into the prepared shape. Generally this movement occurs around 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Lots of work behind each piece!

For multiple listings contact me so as to give you the proper rate as depending on the size of the pieces I need to change the size of the boxes. Thank you =)
