I cut each leaf from a pattern made from an actual maple or oak leaf found in Rhode Island. After cutting out the shape, I paint the clear glass to resemble those colors found in nature, etching the veins onto the leaves by removing some paint. I then place the leaves on a mold and heat them in a kiln to achieve the gentle curve which gives the leaves the effect of fluttering in the wind.
It is Friday!!!
I’m going to be a lazy bones this weekend!
What are you going to do this weekend? I hope you can do something you enjoy.
I’ll see you back here on Monday!
