Fused Glass Home Decor Flower Poppies in Silhouette

Fused glass poppy shadows float over almost flowing undulations of reds with a hint of yellow and white.  These dark poppy silhouettes climb gently over a fully fused disk of Bullseye glass.

To create the art glass base for these flowers, I filled a clay pot from Home Depot with scrap transparent and opaque shades of glass.  When the glass is heated to 1700 degrees Fahrenheit, the glass flows out and spreads to form a circle.  In a second firing, hooks were added for hanging.
