fused glass by Jim Shelley

Oklahoma City, OK

I create kiln fused and cold worked glass dishes, decorative pieces, and functional art.  My pieces move between organic, geometric, and representational. Triangles are often the starting point to my work. Although the triangles are not always recognizable in my finished products, they facilitate a layering of colors and shading. I look for a face, an eye, an animal, or an organic form in the melted glass. I use frit (powdered glass) to create images, usually of animals. Sawing, grinding, and sanding finishes my pieces. I experiment with firing times and temperatures to achieve various shapes and textures. - Jim Shelley
