Description

This glass was fused by me. It was cast in a mould and then the glass was heated up to around 790 degrees celsius in a small glass fusing kiln and then it was then brought to annealing temperature to make it strong. It was then fire polished in the kiln to create the smooth surface. This whole process takes over 17 hours to complete.
It is a stunning dragonfly, with an orange-red body, emerald head and wings in sunflower yellow with red veins. The glass is very tactile with raised veins in the wings and three dimensional body. Beautiful! It has a copper loop as it's antennae, allowing this ornament to be worn as a pendant but it might equally be used as a small suncatcher in a window.
It is approximately 5cm high and 6.5cm across - this is a bold piece of costume jewellery and not a delicate trinket. It comes with a black cord necklace. A gorgeous piece, each dragonfly is individually made and one of a kind.

Not suitable for children - this is made from real glass and needs to be treated respect - it may have sharp edges if broken. It is, however, made from thick annealed glass so is fairly robust for everyday use.

Other dragonflies and insects are available - please see my other listings.

Inspiration

This was inspired by the dragonflies seen whilst punting on the River Cam.
