StacyLynne's mosaic piece inspired me to post a picture of one of my non-bead glass pieces. :)
Here's my cast glass angel with wirework and stained glass.
She's a goddess piece that I made when I had my miscarriage....
Kind of Glass Therapy :)

I wish I had another more complete image, but this will have to do.

I took a class about a year ago at the Worcester craft center in casting with one of Dan Dailey's team. Wonderful class. The body is cast out of those recycled green glass(coke bottle glass?) marbles for flower arranging. It's hard to see in the photo, but there's a honeycomb pattern to the glass where the marbles all melted into each other. I copper foiled the edges of the cast piece and attached the wings, which are regular figured stained glass and also fused glass I did with copper wire spiral inclusions.
The wire spirals along the edges are doubled over and soldered to give the ribbon effect.
Glass casting is a blast... The original body is made of clay, and then a plaster silica mix is poured over it and set. When it's dry (the plaster) you dig out all the still wet clay, and clean it out.
Then you thoroughly dry the mold, fill it with glass and fire it at full fuse temp in the kiln. Run it through a very long annealing soak and annealing cycle, and Ta Da! it's done.

Here's a more complete picture.
A better idea of size as well. She's not very big.
