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!
