These larger fused pieces are all individually cut, shaped, layered and fused. No piece ever turns out alike. Use Martin's unique fusings then add your own tiles to fill in. Each Skeewbacker Shape is also hand-cut. This is a fun shape for those who love dragonflies. Make it on a stake for a garden or hang it on an inside wall. Great for selling at art and craft fairs.
The intricately detailed glass fusions, all made by Martin in his workshop, take his mosaics to another dimension, adding varying degrees of reflectivity and energy, something not easily obtained using traditional mosaic materials.
