Alfeze is my artistic name

As a way of relaxing I make things so as to differentiate my home life from my computing work life. Current involvements are Jewellery and Glass fusing although in the past and still occasionally I draw, paint, rubber stamp, paint silk etc.

My latest glass fusing  has been to try making bowls and using dichroic glass and dichroic paper as highlights. Using dichroic paper is very interesting but mostly from the way it inherits its effects from the base layer of glass. Dichroic glass on the other hand can produce major bubbles during the full fuse phase!

This is a bowl that I made for a friend. It uses dichroic paper and dichroic glass embedded between two layers of glass. The bottom layer is two types of iridised bullseye glass.

About alfeze1

Although computing has my way of life and has been for the past 30years or so my loves are; making things inc many arts and crafts, gardening, photography, birds and wildlife and the occasional bit of sport like skiing... or at least apres ski:-) We are also involved with the NWPG and the Kennet and Avon Canal Society and crew occasionally on the Rose of Hungerford. A canal boat that runs public trips to raise money for work on the Kennet & Avon Canal. In a few months I hope to leave behind computing, and devote myself to creation instead of just fixing. I will them start to publish on a more regular basis.
