Instant Garden –
Gardening season is not nearly long enough, but our little windowsill garden will stay in bloom all year and does not require any weeding! A win-win!! Place it on your windowsill and enjoy your year-round blooms.
The Windowsill Garden can also be used as a candle lens – place it in front of a candle and the flame will illuminate the flower garden.
This is a great gift for people who say they don’t need anything because everyone needs another reason to smile. 🙂
These are handmade, which means the flowers and petals are different in each garden.
When you order, please include a note indicating the color you want – red, orange, pink, blue or purple. It is approximately 7″ long and 4″ high.
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.
Check out this video to view the process.
