Hand beveled triangle- First 3 stages

This triangle show the first three of four stages in hand beveling.  The bottom is the initial stage to get the angle and grind the glass, smoothing stage is taking another layer off to get rid of the deep scratches, prepolish is another layer off just before polishing.  Notice the widths of the bevel, they are not the same as a standard bevel is.  I do this in my work to create more depth and movement.

Just finished giving a presentation/demonstration of my work to a group of 30 Vancouver Artist Association members.  I enjoyed explaining the process to designing for glass and painting as well showing how to cut glass and the beveling process. I will be getting pictures to post later.

Heart Shaped hanging piece- completed

This is the completed piece.  I really enjoy the design and beveling. The red on the left is two pieces beveled and bonded on which added an extra design element.  Exterior came is copper.  Fun piece!
