Another candle-holder, practicing with curve-cutting and grinding. Basic soldering is improving but the corners on this one are a bit iffy – probably more to do with construction than cutting. Base is Scottish slate which has tiny inclusions of iron pyrites.

Naturally a stained glass heart, in red on a base of Ballachulish slate. This one has a watch insert – so it’s useful as well πŸ™‚

Stained Glass…3

Third in the series – again about 25cm tall – a standard candle makes a very pleasing sight in the evening. Now looking forward to getting a variation in glass colours and proper silver patina (which I prefer). Many designs now at the sketchbook stage of the pipeline.

Stained Glass…2

A second candle holder approx 25cm tall by 8cm diameter. The colours are the same in these first items as these were the colours in the starter glass pack and local specialists have been closed during the festive period. I’m getting the hang of the soldering and more confidence with glass cutting.
