Handmade Fused Glass Meadow Sun Catchers

Natroma Fused Glass Designs are handmade by Sarah (Natroma's Founder).  I'm not an artist, but I enjoy being creative and working with my hands.  I originally took up glass fusing in 2016 because I wanted my soaps to have their own unique glass soap dishes.  As I've developed my experience and knowledge of working with glass in the kiln, I've started making a wider variety of items.  I love anything that's pretty and decorative (anyone visiting the Natroma shop will know that I love purchasing pretty, sparkly items for our shop!), and fused glass really sparkles and glistens when it's displayed in sunlight.  I've taken inspiration from holistic imagery and the natural beauty in my garden and local countryside, to create a range of small decorative glass sun catchers. 

The Meadow series of sun catchers contain flowers, foliage, leaves and grasses that may extend over the edge of the design at the base.  Some also contain stems painted with glass enamels and butterflies.  Colours will vary.

Approximate Glass Size:  10cm (tall) x 5-6cm (width) x 0.5-1cm (depth) on a thread with beads (overall height including glass 21cm).

Each sun catcher will be wrapped in tissue and packaged in a small brown box to protect the glass during transit.

Meadow Fused Glass Sun Catcher Designs:

Aqua Meadow (image 1) -  aqua, turquoise, pale blue glass flowers with a taller white daisy, green stems and leaves.

Red Meadow (image 2)  - red, orange glass flowers, with green stems and leaves and a taller white daisy.

Butterfly Meadow (image 3) - multi coloured flowers against a meadow background (in assorted colours), with a butterfly.

Pastel Meadow (image 4) - pastel coloured flowers, with a white daisy, green stems and leaves.

 

I use a variety of transparent and opaque glass to create miniature scenes, that look beautiful when hung in a window.  I design each piece and hand cut my selected glass into small shapes, and these are constructed into mini scenes.  Sometimes I paint the glass with glass enamels, before adding more glass to add texture.  Each design is fired in a kiln for up to 24 hours reaching temperatures of up to 800OC, and I carefully control the firing process so the glass melts and forms a texture before it is slowly cooled.  The final glass pieces are polished and the shiny glass surface is tactile, so you can run your fingers across the surface and feel the shape of the flowers, insects and vegetation.  Each piece is finished by hand, and is threaded onto a strong nylon thread with pretty faceted glass beads. 

Each fused glass sun catcher is hand made by me, so it will be completely unique.  There are many designs of these meadow sun catchers, which are available for inspection in our Stourbridge shop.  For the website, I am making a few of each design, but each piece will have it's own uniqueness.  Each design has been photographed inside against a white background with overhead lights, but the glass colours will vary on different computer screens.  The sun catcher will look brighter once it is hung in a window, and the camera cannot capture the way that transparent fused glass glistens in sunlight.  The images on this page will hopefully give you an idea of the designs, but the item you receive will be a genuine 'one off, and there may be subtle differences compared to what you see on this page.    The glass beads on each sun catcher may vary in colour and shape, but I try to co-ordinate them with the glass colours in each design.  I hope you enjoy owning these unique sun catchers or perhaps gifting them, as much as I enjoyed creating them.
