Welcome to our website.
We are living in strange times, and we count ourselves fortunate to be able to continue communicating with friends and family, even if we can't give them a physical hug.
The on-line store is up and running, and we are stocking it with more goodies each month. You can see some of our latest listings in the shop at the head of this page - just click to go directy to the shop.

There's a guy called 'The GlassHoppa'...
He is one one the great people throughout the world of Glass Fusing who take the time to share their ideas and techniques, and encourage newbies like us to use those ideas for ourselves.
These Christmas Trees take a little time to construct, laying hand-cut shards of glass on a shaped clear base. We then decorate with small glass beads that we've made during previous projects. These are then Tack Fused, which is hot enough to fuse the separate pieces of glass onto the base and themselves, but leaving a great 3D texture to the resulting tree. Once it's cooled, we glue on a hanging bail, and then thread some ribbon ready for you to hang it on your tree.
These trees come in a variety of colours, and vary in size. They are usually between 6 cm and 9 cm tall.
If you want a small Christmas tree...
... here's your opportunity to have a tree that will fit on your desk at work, around the base of your main Christmas Tree, or maybe on your window ledge.
We make these trees from 4 pieces of hand-cut glass - two for the tree and two for the trunk. The coloured glass is laid out as the base, and clear glass is laid on top, with a wire staple sandwiched between the two layes at the foot of the trunk. Fully fusing the piece causes the pieces to melt together to become a single piece of glass, with the wire firmly embedded in the trunk. The wooden base is drilled and the completed tree is glued in place.
These trees come in a variety of colour combinations and are 7 to 8 cm in height and are mounted on a real wood base.
If you'd like something that has a little more sparkle built in, then try these beauties. They are very similar to the trees above, but are made from Dichroic glass (glass coated with a metallic film). They are slightly shorter as they don't have a trunk.
If you take a look at our Forest of Christmas Trees posting you'll recognise these trees.

A few glass dots made during previous projects make the decorations on our trees. Fully fusing the tree causes the pieces to melt together to become a single piece of glass.
