In the past, I have seen and posted about people don’t some really cool stuff with stained glass but never with glass rods. Honestly, I don’t think I realized that glass rods were even a thing until I saw this picture below. However, I think this might just be cooler than all of those stained glass things I have posted in the past if for no other reason than this is 3D!
Reddit user LizWrong spent around 24 hours over two weeks making this incredible 2′ tall R2-D2 out of bent and welded glass rods. I’d say it was time well spent because I think it turned out amazing! This is definitely the glass droid I haven’t been looking for!
I wish I had the knowledge and skills to do something like this. Heck, I didn’t even know you could weld glass until I saw LizWrong’s description of it. I can now say I have learned something new today!
