Those are really great and unique! I'm a little curious about the process too. Special types of glass? Kiln time, temp. etc? Stuff like that. Have you other non-tiki work to show?

thanks,
as far as creation goes.. i use glass that is formulated to heat and cool at the same rate to eliminate cracks from thermal shock. each color and design element is a separate piece of glass that has been cut, ground and meticulously placed. the pieces, depending on the level of relief of the design elements, are heated to temperatures between 1350-1500 degrees for anywhere between 14-19 hours. although the tikis are my personal favorite to create, i also have non-tiki pieces.

and

within the next few days, my website will have every piece to date. in the meantime here are some of my flyers for the other series.

Hey that's very cool!

You've got some nice Positive-Negative Interchange action happening there.

Kinda looks like he got caught halfway between here and bizarro world

I really liked the rally striped pieces, they're like minimalist art, but with meaning!

I've just had a brainstorm: what about fused glass playing cards? A deck would be less than useless, but fused glass renditions of the face cards & aces, or famous hands ("Dead Man's Hand," Royal Straight FLush, etc.) might sell.

thanks for the compliments,
that is so weird, my sister mentioned something similar last night.. i have 4 glass coasters in the kiln right now, one with each suit. Thats an awesome idea, thank you, the actual cards would so take it to the next level.
could i consider you a customer... hint hint
