Set of flower coasters

Post  Mead Moon on Sun Jul 15, 2012 12:55 pm

A friend asked me to make him a set of coasters, so I took the opportunity to practise cutting curves. The final results are in an FB album (because I still can't get them anything but huge if I add them as images here):

Glass coasters on FB

I've learned not to put pieces of glass on the top layer too close to the edge ('cos it makes the squares not square) and to double check that all frit balls are securely glued down before firing (spot the one that rolled away to where it shouldn't be!)

These were originally meant to be Sunflowers, but all my yellow glass was actually red striker so they're now Gerberas Laughing

I saw those on facebook Elaine, they're gorgeous, really bright and sunny. Just what we need these days.
And if it's any help to you I don't mind if your pictures here are huge; it makes it easier for me to see them Smile

They are lovely Elaine - I would be chuffed to bits not only to have made them but to receive them as well, one lucky friend you have there.

Thank you all, he seemed quite pleased with them - and a couple of other people at the barn dance, where I handed them over, complemented me on them as well, so I'm happy Smile

All I need now is for the cuts to heal Laughing
