Silver Birch Golden Window Glass Panel
Fused glass panel in a Cherry Red with a golden window using Silver Birch leaves.
Each piece is made by hand using actual leaves. Assembling all materials between two sheets of clear glass, the little birch leaf inside the yellow window here has been left inside the glass. Elsewhere I’ve used a combination of copper oxide and glass powder using other 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.
This glass panel is mounted in an oak wood stand finished with a light coating of hard wearing Chestnut finishing oil.
Size: 10cm (w) x 20.3cm (h) x 7.8cm (d) including the Oak wood stand
