Pretty Birds and Decorative Touches

I've been back in my glass studio lately...working on some new ideas...and really enjoying myself....i found an interesting object to use as a stencil design at the Gabriola Recycling friend Carole Reid , who is a wonderful artist, was here for a visit a while back and she wanted to go to the is a great place for mixed media artists... i picked up an old piece of junk, an old furnace grate and thought it would make a cool stencil to create my own home made patterned sheet glass....and so it did, as you can see in these pix....much more to come as i explore all my new patterned glass.....
