Lupine Suncatcher Ornament
June in Maine is wonderful – you can drive along certain highways and see wild lupines growing along the road or in fields. I always look forward to coming across an unexpected display of wild Maine lupines!
Do you need a bright spot of color? Our lupine suncatcher ornament is sure to do the trick! These would make a great gift, just because … just because someone loves flowers, just because they need a pick me up, just because you are thinking of them. Whatever the reason, gift one … just because.
Our lupine ornament has a ribbon from which to hang it.
These ornaments are handmade, which means the flowers and stems are different from one to the next. Approximately 4.5″ tall by 2.5″ wide.
When you order, please include a note that indicates the color desired. If you do not include a note, we will send a random color.
Innovative Glass and Home
… your source for innovative, stained glass valances and fused glass ornaments, dishware, and decorative products for your home!
Polly & Dan have been working with glass since 2005 and have a studio in their home in Scarborough, Maine. They both do traditional stained glass work, but Polly’s real passion is fusing glass.
The Art of Fusing Glass:
The process begins with fusible stained glass. Elements of the design are cut by hand from the various colors of glass, cleaned, assembled, and placed in a kiln. The intense heat fuses the individual pieces of glass into one. The size and thickness of the glass dictates how long it needs to stay in the kiln, but a typical firing takes approximately 18 hours.
Creating a dish from the fused piece of glass is achieved by returning it to the kiln a second time, at a lower temperature, on a ceramic or stainless steel mold. The glass slumps into the mold, taking on its shape, as the temperature in the kiln rises. That process is glass slumping.
