Fused Glass Candle Holders

I finished these two candle holders before my surgery, and they've been forgotten in a corner ever since. I found them earlier this week and got excited all over again--I love the way they came out! The frothy bubbles in the blue candle holder above are just amazing with a lit candle inside. I can't capture that look well with my camera, so you'll have to take my work for it. Or buy it and see for yourself! ;)

The cranberry colored candle holder below has a beautiful range of colors and visual texture. Although it's not made with dichroic glass, you get a similar shifting of colors in the light, and it retains it's translucent qualities in candle light. Both pieces are sized to hold tea light candles, and the cranberry holder is just tall enough to hold a votive.
