Handmade Fused Glass Sun Catchers

These fused glass sun catchers are hand made, so each one is completely unique.  We have them available for inspection in our Stourbridge shop.  Each design has been photographed inside against a white background with overhead lights, but the glass colours may vary on different computer screens and will look different once the suncatcher is hung in a window. The camera cannot capture the way that transparent fused glass glistens in sunlight.  The images on this page give you an idea of the designs, but the item you receive will be a one off, so there will be subtle differences to these website images.   The glass beads on each sun catcher may vary in colour and shape.

Small Fused Glass Sun Catcher Designs:

Lavender  - purple/lilac textured glass, with 2 or 3 lavender stems and leaves (colours vary)

Daisy - single daisy stem with textured raised background (colours may vary)

Rainbow Feather - single feather design with a rainbow of colours, with a raised transparent background (feather shape will vary).

Dragonfly - aqua wings with a raised body (colour may vary) with a raised background.

Mushroom - cute red mushroom with white spots (shape will vary), with green grass.

Aqua Daisy Meadow - white daisy with stems and leaves and other flowers.

Blue & Yellow Meadow - each is unique with a mixture of flowers and green leaves/grasses.

Red flower - a red flower with other foliage and flowers (colours will vary).

Heart - raised red glass forms the shape of a heart, with a raised transparent background.

Each fused glass sun catcher will be dispatched in a small organza gift bag, that has been wrapped in tissue paper to protect the glass during transit.

Approximate Glass Size:  6cm (tall) x 5cm (width) x 0.5-1cm (depth) on a thread with beads (overall height including glass 16cm).

Natroma Fused Glass Designs are handmade by Sarah (Natroma's Founder). I originally took up glass fusing in 2016 because I wanted my soaps to have their own unique glass soap dishes.  As I have developed my experience and knowledge of working with glass in the kiln, I began making a wider variety of items.  I love anything that's pretty and decorative (anyone visiting the Natroma shop will know I'm a bit of a magpie when it comes to finding pretty, sparkly items for our shop!), and fused glass really sparkles and glistens when it's displayed in sunlight.  I have 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.

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 800C, 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, vegetation and insects.  Each piece is finished by hand, and is threaded onto a strong nylon thread with faceted glass beads. I hope you enjoy owning these unique fused glass sun catchers or perhaps gifting them, as much as I enjoy creating them.

This was origininally part of a secret santa gift which didn't take place. Si I've added it to the gift for someone else and she no doubt will enjoy it catching the light somewhere.
