Beautiful, unique fused-glass decorations (idea for the Christmas Tree, or all-year-round use).
Handmade with your choice of photograph - maybe your favourite pet, family photos etc.
I make each of these little decorations by hand, cutting shaping and drilling 3mm white art-glass, before copying and processing your photograph to create a black and white laser-printed 'decal'. When fired in my kiln, the iron in the laser print turns into iron oxide (which gives the piece its rich sepia colour), and fuses permanently into the surface of the glass. The fusing process involves temperatures approaching 800c and takes 7 hours from start to finish.
After the pieces have fused, I add a burgundy ribbon, so you can hang the decoration from your Christmas Tree, or anywhere else in your home.
Each of these unique pieces is hand-made to order - so please allow at least one week for me to make your keepsake.
If you would like more than one of the same design, then they become cheaper. For instance, if you wanted ten of the same design then they will be €9 each plus postage - email me to discuss. I'm also happy to make commemerative or corporate pieces - please email me to discuss.
After ordering - please email your photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org. The process works best with colour or black and white photos with good contrast - remember that any colour in the photo will be converted into shades of sepia. If we don't think your photo is suitable for the process then we will let you know, and you can either email us a more suitable photo or we will refund your payment. If in any doubt - email us the photo before buying and we can advise.
The photo of the collie dog in the Christmas hat shows a photograph of an actual finished piece, the other images are photoshopped examples to give you some ideas!
