This glass wall art panel, Rainbow Remnants, has been fused in the kiln for the first time.

Here you can see me cleaning and grinding the surface of the piece.

This is necessary, as there are a few slightly raised areas of glass, and I need it to be absolutely flat for the next stage of embellishment.

Next I'll be adding glass stringers and noodles. These are thin round rods of glass.

If the glass base layer isn't completely flat, the stringers are more likely to roll around in the kiln - and not stay exactly where I want them to.

You can see that these big glass panels take a lot of work - but actually it's really enjoyable ... I get into the groove, time flies by and something beautiful comes out!
