Bloody Mary Red Cocktail Handmade Fused Glass Christmas Ornament Sun Catcher

I created this Bloody Mary cocktail ornament by cutting out the glass bowl shape, foot shape and two rectangles for the stem from clear glass. Next, I glued the pieces together so that there is a stem piece on both sides of the bowl and foot for strength. Then I placed a piece of dark red glass slightly smaller than the bowl size atop it. I heated this ornament to 1480 degrees Fahrenheit. Once everything was fused I glued a small amount of white frit across the top ent to 1480 degrees Fahrenheit. Once everything was fused I glued a small amount of white frit across the top of the glass to represent sugar or salt and heated it to 1380 degrees F. A piece of hi-temp wire has been embedded between the top layers of glass to serve as a hook for hanging and as a swizzle stick. I have several of these in stock and while they are very similar they are not identical since they are completely handmade. Each glass is approximately 1 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" long. All of my items are in stock and ready to be shipped. read more
