Fused Glass Cat

This fused glass cat was a custom order and is about 10 inches tall by 7 inches wide.  He has lots of textured fur and stripes.  I used bits of beautiful dichroic glass for both eyes and the nose.  The background has 3 wild flowers with some frit shading.  This piece hangs from two metal jump rings fused into the top and a piece of white grosgrain ribbon.  The cat was fired to a contour fuse, so you can really feel the texture.  I used Bullseye striker glass for the cone flower petals and love how the color turned out.  Even the yellow petals of the black eyed susans seem to pop against the transparent yellow background.  Maybe a fused glass dog is in my future!
