Crusty
Mrs Crusty recently took a stained glass class at the local community college and really took to it! She bought the equipment to do it at home and has been making some cool stuff. What prompted me to post here is she's started to incorporate stones and shells in to her pieces! here is a shell piece and one with a few translucent rocks we tumbled. The possibilities of what she could do here are exciting... a piece with a thunder egg slice as the center, something with a few cabs worked in... could be some cool stuff!

That's going to be some nice work I'm sure Crusty. We had a forum user some years back who made really neat lamps from stone slabs in "stained glass" style shades/creations.

Here is a pic from one of his....also a pic attachment test, seems to be working for me Crusty.

Snowdog's creations are really pretty, check out some more in the original thread if you'd like......

We'll all be looking forward to seeing pics of "Mrs. Crusty's" creations soon too. happy088.gif

Very awesome! I can't wait to see your work!
Hey..... maybe we should have an Art & Crafts or Artisan section in the forums? It is kinda Off Topic but we have a lot of super talented people here. I usually put my stuff in Living Off The Lands but that's not always a truly good fit. hmmmm?
Caveman
Very good idea!
fenixsmom
I think that is a fabulous idea!
CP
Done deal!! thumbsupsmileyanim.gif Fresh wall paper and everything. whew.gif

Oh and I fixed the broken link to the other thread which wasn't working......no one even told me, sheesh! confused0082[1].gif slaphead.gif

Hey Dan, your clock is an hour ahead as well ;)
CP
Actually my clock (when signed in) shows the correct time. Have you set your time zone for yourself when signed in yet fenixsmom?
You'll find that setting when you go to "my controls" then scroll down to find the "board settings" link to the left, there you can set the proper time zone (GMT Mountain time) and even adjust for auto daylight savings time adjustment if you want.

Thanks for this Dan! chores041.gif
I'm going to move my knifemaking thread on over here, better fit.
CP
You're welcome and I'd agree knife making will fit here in this new section nicely. happy088.gif
fenixsmom
Ah ha! I retract my complaint! Thanks Dan!
Denise
I would love to see pictures of your wife's stained glass work Crusty!! thumbsupsmileyanim.gif Really fun stuff to work with, can even incorporate pieces of mirror in the project giving it a cool effect. I use to have a blast doing stained glass work!!

Not sure what is up with my computer, but still can't get the attachment function to work. Will upload them to SmugMug and post them :)

Crusty
OK, giving this a try again!

A friend of mine asked Carol to make a green heart for his wife for Mother's Day; her first "commissioned" piece! She had 2 ideas, so made them both so he could pick from them and he bought them both thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Crusty
WOO HOO... it is working now! :) (thanks to Mrs CP reminding me of the 4mb file size limit :) )

One of the first projects she made at home; teal ribbons for ovarian cancer for all her sisters, in memory of their mother

The first heart she made

An early project around Christmas, a snowman ornament







Crusty
She thought it would be cool to integrate some translucent stones in; I concur, it was!

A small framed abstract

This is her first tree... she is currently working on a panel of 4 trees; one for each season!

Denise
Very cool work Crusty! Tell her I said she's doing a fantastic job, they look great! I love the hearts but I must say that the tree is my favorite. thumbsupsmileyanim.gif The stones do look really cool incorporated into the work.

Thanks for sharing pics of her work with us!!

Amazing work! I love the hearts but especially the tree.

Rog! If you've got a different picture of one you'd like to see it based on, let me know!


She has done a couple cool pieces based on photos I've taken, which is kinda awesome!

Nope, same design as that one will do quite nicely.

Shock and awe.... this is some incredibly nice work! worthy.gif
swizz
Holy b-Jesus... I'll be posting up one of Mrs Crusty's insanely beautiful works here in the near future, and it is a personal piece. worthy.gif worthy.gif worthy.gif worthy.gif
It is truly an heirloom work of art. It will be in my family for many years to come.
swizz
Here is the piece and it is stunning.
Very accurate depiction of my mine cabin. Her choices of glass for the colors and textures are spot on, she really nailed it on the logs and even soldered detail into the log corners!
I am amazed with this work of art.

This is an enhanced image of the cabin which Crusty created and gave to me. As you can see, the glass depiction is strikingly accurate!

How long has Mrs. Crusty been doing this? I am very impressed. Is she up for commission pieces yet?

She's been at it for 3-4 years and has done quite a few request. She hasn't done much lately, kinda on a hiatus, but if you've got an interesting idea, she might take on the challenge!

She did the Air Force logo and my CMSgt stripes for my retirement shadow box (which my cousin built) Click to view attachment

and a logo for the National Mill Dog Rescue that she donated to them
Crusty
A few more pics of her work. THe pig as the first one she ever did.

The AMAZING hummingbird was her second (yes, she must be a natural to do something so cool so quick!). It hangs in the window in our shower.

We got an old cabinet at an antique store and she made the glass for it.

Here is what I kinda had in mind Crusty...

Might be hard to translate to a stained glass piece, but she looked at it and said she might be able to make it work.
