|Fused Glass Dichroic Scarab Beetle Color Shift|
To create the art glass base for the beetle, I filled a terra cotta planter from Home Depot with scrap transparent and opaque shades of green and white Bullseye glass. The pot is balanced on strips cut from a kiln shelf. When the glass scrap is heated to 1700 degrees Fahrenheit, the glass flows out of the pot's drainage hole and spreads to fill the terra cotter saucer.

I love pot melts. It is an amazing way to incorporate movement and flow into a piece. Each finished glass round is completely unique and full swirling color.
