More fusing & slumping

Some more stuff I did at the Crucible glass fusing & slumping class. The body of the bird is done with slim glass rods which I bent by heating them, and the wing is a very quick mosaic. The body of the crocodile is very coarse frit (chunks of broken glass) – I did it for my favorite niece, who has an intriguing fascination for these animals. And for my favorite sister, I did 9 buttons (hope that’s enough), was lots of work, but pretty fun!
