In The Studio - Wednesday


Playing catch up with my blog posts and sharing what I've been up to instead of writing in the blog!

I grouted all the crosses I had made and gave the customer her order. Listed the other two crosses on Etsy, so be sure to head on over there and take a look if you so chose.

Painters tape is used on sides and back to protect the MDF from excessive grout.

One of my favorite parts about grouting is seeing how it looks just before the cleaning begins. Makes me smile every darned time! It all comes together for me when grout is added.

Freshly grouted. Switch plate is sitting on the shelves ... unsure if I'll list it but it was fun to make!
I got myself some new acrylics and have used a few so far. The yellow and blue were painted white on sides and back. The scrap glass (custom order) was painted black.

Custom order now with the customer who loved it! Yay!

Yellow cross is listed on Etsy.

Blue and white cross is also listed on Etsy.
I had a little black grout left over from the cross I have shown above, so I added what I had to the candle holder I made a while ago. Still a LOT to grout before I'll call it finished, but it's a start!

LOVE it even more with grout!!

Beautiful blues and purples in hand cut stained glass pieces add such a soft, subtle addition to any room in your home. Perfect to use with a candle for the bathroom right next to a bubble bath and a glass of wine after a long, exhausting day. This stained glass candle holder is gorgeous.



This 3-1/2 inch glass vessel is covered in stained glass, even the sides. Grouted in a beautiful hand mixed blue.



Wouldn't this make a great one-of-a-kind housewarming or hostess gift? Wouldn't it be great for the office in your home or at the work place? It holds more than a candle. It could be used for pens, pencils, fresh flowers ... all with a touch of class. Use it at home with a candle for a romantic feeling in your home. The candle light makes the colors of stained glass glow a brilliant luminosity. Sit it in a sunny spot and watch the glass colors come alive! It's gorgeous!! It would be a wonderful surprise for anyone's birthday, make a special anniversary or retirement gift.




Fits any decor making it a great wedding gift or a wonderful treat for yourself! This is a mosaic that is functional as well as a useful art piece. Votive and tea lights fit easily in this holder.

In The Studio - Wednesday

Wow have I been busy this week!! I worked on putting mosaics on crosses and even did some grouting. I have more grouting to do but I'm fairly sure I'll get most if not all of it done by the end of the week. Good for me!!

This cross is part of a custom order.
All sparkly and waiting for grout.

Freshly grouted and STILL sparkly.
One of these crosses will finish up the custom order. I'm allowing the customer to choose from them once they are all grouted.

Positive this one will be grouted in black.

This cross will definitely get white grout.

This one will also get white grout.

This candle holder has been sitting and waiting for a while for grout. It needs one more good cleaning and then I can get some photos of it for Etsy.

Really love the process of slapping grout all over glass, mirror, dish shards and tiles too. I got my fingers in this stuff this time. I love getting messy!

Grout was still wet and there was a lot to clean off at this point but I am very happy with the results. Look for it soon in my Etsy shop.

Let's Go Shopping!

Mosaic Stained Glass, Trivet, Candle Holder, Octagon, Mosaic Mirror, Earth Tones, For The Home, Gift Idea, Wedding, Anniversary - 6.5 Inches - $38.25

A plain, boring mirrored candle holder and/or trivet is now a piece of original mosaic art! A simple design in waves of stained glass in orange, amber, yellow and red weave throughout this 6-1/2 inch trivet. Felt pads on the bottom to protect your table or other surfaces.








The reflective qualities in this are outstanding. You can see from the photos the way the triangles are shown throughout the mirror underneath the glass. In bright light you have an amazing light show! The last photo shows how the mosaic looked before grout, still as a work-in-progress.








This mirrored trivet looks great sitting on a table with a lit candle in the center - reflections go everywhere. This would make a great wedding gift or housewarming gift. Give the gift of handmade art to those you love especially yourself!
