Aqua Golden Window Glass Panel
Fused glass panel in an Aqua colour with a golden window. This glass panel is based on a leaf I found in the gardens of my previous studio and it's sometimes not possible to identify the tree the leaf has come from.
Each piece is made by hand using actual leaves. Assembling all materials between two sheets of clear glass, the leaf inside the yellow window has been left inside the glass. Elsewhere I’ve used a combination of copper oxide and glass powder with the same leaves to create the pattern. These are then put into the kiln at temperatures above 800 degrees centigrade where the leaf has burnt out entirely leaving its imprint in the glass and the silver leaf turns a beautiful golden yellow.
The glass panel is mounted in an oak wood stand finished with a light coating of hard wearing Chestnut finishing oil.
Size: 10cm (w) x 20.5cm (h) x 7.8cm (d) including the Oak wood stand
