Birch Tree Grove on Tall Stand
Love Birch Trees? Then this Birch Tree Grove is for you! The glass piece and stand is approximately 12″ x 17.5″. Place it on a windowsill or on a bookcase – wherever you put it, it is sure to please.
The birch tree grove you order will be very similar to the one pictured, but slightly different as they are handcrafted.
The trees are cut by hand from white glass and placed on the base. I use black confetti, stringers and frit, which are all made from glass, for the black markings on the trees. The leaf canopy is formed by using different shades of glass frit. All of the glass needs to be washed, rinsed and dried before assembly. When the glass is clean, I begin by creating the black markings typically found on Birch trees and then use frit to form the leaf canopy. The ferns at the base of the trees are snipped from green glass and the ground is created by using frit. Once complete, it goes into the kiln to be fused into one piece.
Innovative Glass and Home
your source for innovative, stained glass & fused glass products for your home!
Polly & Dan have been working with glass for more than a decade in their home studio in Dayton, Maine. While they do traditional stained glass work, Polly is passionate about fusing glass. When fusing glass, each element of the design is cut by hand, thoroughly washed, assembled and placed in the kiln where it fuses together to become one piece of glass. If working on a plate, the fused piece of glass is placed in the kiln a second time on top of a mold and during the firing the glass slumps down into the mold, taking on its shape. A long process, to be sure, but a whole lot of fun!!
