Glass Buttons by Studio Artist Jodie McDougall

Jodie’s buttons are made by using an oxygen propane torch and various colored glass rods. They are not painted. She use ancient cane building techniques to create images in glass called murrini. Each image can take days to months to create. The shanks are imbedded into the glass while it is in a molten state to ensure that it becomes a permanent attachment to the piece. No glue is involved.ishot-12
