It's me again with yet another query!

Apart from using plate stands (which are fine but aren't really 'arty') has anyone found a nice way to combine different media for displayin fused glass pieces? For instance using wood as a base or support, or metal?

Aye, always with the questions! Grin

I scrounge slices of wood from tree surgeons with the bark still on, let them dry out and set dichro against them, or use as plate stand, and also long flat wide strips of mahogany with two channels taken out of it to display suncatchers and so e wall art etc
Ikea sell really basic small easels for about 70p, they are a bit rubbish looking when just bought but you can paint, stain and decorate with the fancy decorative wooden beading strips you get for doing around door panels (I can't think of the name for them) with these on, and painted white and distressed a bit, can look quite nice for a colourful wall panel or something

I like the idea of using wood but how do you create the channels? Not sure about the idea of the easels but I will check them out. I've found an American site that has metal displays: www.sundanceglass.com but with the initial cost plus postage I think it could be a bit too pricey. If only there was a UK supplier.....
