Duckling Stained Glass

My parents own a duck restaurant in Indonesia. My Dad is a great artist and made so many handmade ducks accessories all over the restaurant and replica of the foods they serve.
As a gift for my parents, I decided to make stained glass of duckling so they can put it on the restaurant.

Red Dragonfly Stained Glass

I know I've been making more of glasswork than beading. I'm still beading my parents' tapestry, but for the last 2 weeks I've been practicing stained glass.
My backyard has a nickname "dragonfly forest" because there are so many dragonflies during Summer time.
Also, my Chinese family name means forest, so that's where the "dragonfly forest" nickname came from.

I thought it would be nice to make something with dragonfly, so I found this pattern using 25 pieces.
Although not perfectly round, here it is.. my red dragonfly.

Orange Glass Blowing Bowl

I decided to use the coupon to make big glass bowl, so I can have "something new" for Chinese New Year.
I planned to use red color bowl with stripe of yellow. But it turned out that red is a color that's stubborn and likes to merge with other colors. So, guess what happened? My planned of having red and yellow bowl turned out to be orange bowl. Oopsie!!
But, I love it. I called it the blessing in the mistake. :)
