I'm a fused glass artist, jewelry designer, and dabbler in all things creative from New York who shares her studio with some wonderful furry kids. Mom to 3 and Nana to 5! I'm seriously enraptured of fresh brewed iced tea, Creamsicle frozen yogurt, love to read and spend time in our garden and fields with furries and family. I could totally do without Northeast winters! You can find my work at http://WillowGlass.etsy.com

Inspired by a thread in a glass forum, I went searching in my kitchen for alternative molds for fusing glass. Can you guess what the prior use of this cactus mold was? A wrought iron cornbread pan! It took many, many small pieces of glass to create this cactus paperweight and the detail of the mold is terrific! Go on - check out your house and garage and I’ll bet you find a funky object you can repurpose for a mold for fusing glass too!
(sorry about the cornbread mold, guys, you'll have to get your cornbread in a loaf now!)
