Yup I don't know what they are really called, but feel free to call them what you want. The website calls them Sun Katchers.
Yesterday I decided it was about time I played with the glass kits I bought at Sandown in July from http://glassgardenstudio.webs.com/ It was a lovely sunny day so I decided to sit out on the patio with the soldering iron and set to work. It's years and years since I did any soldering in earnest.
The heart with the mirror was slightly easier to put together - needless to say I started with the more difficult one with the glass nugget in the centre.
Anyway I am quite pleased with my first efforts, and I think my husband and father would have been pleased to see my results - not a dry joint in sight!
Today I had planned to get some gardening out of the way, and make the other two. Of course best laid plans - it started to rain as I finished pruning and before I mowed the lawns - typical - which also meant no sitting on the Patio and playing. I was very naughty and did the soldering on the dining table! (shhh don't tell anyone - but the table was well protected, and I was working on my special heat proof mat.)
The triangular one was a bit interesting to do too!
I shall send for some more kits - but think I will opt for the ones with mirrors in the centre next time! - lol!
I wish Bath wasn't so far away would love to do dome of Glass Garden Studio's workshops.
