Hot Cut Buns

While I was at Penland, NC for my two-week class in combining metal and flamework, I learned how to make human torsos out of glass. I was instructed to practice making butts and thighs before moving onto the rest of the torso.

Ultimately, I had all these butt and thigh pieces lying around, and I had no idea what to do with them. So, I decided to make a bracelet out of them with the abstract enameled copper leaf pendants. I had sand blasted the glass so it was a beautiful opaque color, and I left the copper natural and connected the parts together.

The reason I named the bracelet Hot-Cut-Buns is that I had both cut and burned myself while making all the parts.
