|Fused Glass Stingray Christmas Ornament Suncatcher|
Cece likes to help create the teacher gifts and I love that she still likes to make things with me. To create the stingray, we first drew the black outline with liquid glass squeezed out of a craft syringe. The liquid glass is actually black powdered glass mixed with cellulose gum. Cece then filled the inside of the stingray with a mix of purple and lavender glass frit in assorted sizes. The outside of the suncatcher was filled in with a mix of blues. A glass hook was added in a second firing.

It is hard to know what your child's teachers really want. I do know each teacher receives more trinkets that they could possibly keep and that they would probably appreciate gift cards more than stuff. So I hope they enjoy the sentiment behind the gift and we'll get them gift cards at the end of the year.
