In the last week, I've been playing with scrap glass from Fremont Glass in Seattle, It's beautiful glass and these scrap strips are cut from the cylinders or sheets during production. Just arrange a few strips, fuse, and then drape over a form and you get a fun glass basket. (Obviously not green and yellow like the one in the rhyme/song)
Because Sunday was Christmas and a rather busy day, I cheated a bit this week and used a plant already hanging around the house for the season and plunked it inside.
The blue table runner is made of sheets of mirrored glass tile from Bedrock Industries. One day they may get cut apart and used in projects but for now they make me smile sitting on a table. Here, the sun causes a blue reflection on the basket. The whole thing is more than a tad garish. Maybe a white poinsettia would cut the roar of color back a bit. On the other hand, it's cold and less colorful outside right now so why not enjoy an indoor carnival of color?
Happy Boxing Day and third day of Hanukkah!
