Glass Art

On my last visit to The Question Mark Lounge, my friends Susan and Mellow surprised me with some handmade artwork for my birthday!

This is a close-up shot of the glass and string sandwich that Susan made.  It commemorates all of the string she wasted at my house during our quilt project!  
::wink wink::
Mellow made this groovy metallic piece.  I think it is a landscape from a planet in a far off galaxy. The second surprise of the visit was that I got to make a piece of glass art too!   
I decided to make an underwater scene of some dancing Septopi.
So first, I created a background.

Then I painted on the front and back of the top piece...

Then, Wham!  After some collaboration with Susan, Amber, and Jeff we had a Glass Septopi sandwich.
