By: Julie Haan for Delphi

3D Spider Sculpture


  • Green Millefiori
  • Black Opal Rods
  • Black Opal Coarse Frit 5 oz.
  • Black Opal Medium Frit 5 oz.
  • Delphi Studio Dome Paper Weight Mold
  • Delphi Studio 5" Square Slumper Mold


1. Fill the prepared Dome Paper Weight mold about ½ full with Black Opal frit (both Medium and Coarse).

2. Fire to a full fuse.

3. Cut Black glass rods (4 pieces 5" and 4 pieces 4-1/2")

4. On a prepared kiln shelf, lay out glass rods in two fans, joined at the center to form legs. The long rods should be positioned in the corners, short rods in the center.

5. Center cast spider body over legs.

6. Place several millefiori slices on the shelf to fire (they should not be touching any other glass).

7. Fire to a medium fuse.

8. Apply shelf wash to the Square Slumper mold, covering the top surface and outside edges.

9. Center the fused spider on the prepared Square Slumper mold with long legs at the corners. Place on a prepared kiln shelf.

10. Fire to slump. Note: Glass rods will usually slump at approximately 1150° F, it is recommended to check progress periodically for best results.

11. Glue fired millefiori eyes on to the spider to complete.
