Glass fusion

Another glass project that I have been working on this new year. After making stained glass, leaded windows, and glass objects, I went to experiment with glass fusion.
This object is about 30 cm high, an abstraction of a city scape. It was my first attempt at glass fusion: I made it to find out how enamel colours behave when pushed to mingle in between sheets of glass. And what it looks like after its melted together.
As example: the left part consist of four sheets of plain glass, one with enamel in three colours in between, the other with aluminium and copper foil, and one with (special) wire in between.
I am going to use this experience in the next object.

I like this experiment very much. Very interesting and complex technique.
It pushes me to think about ocean world, plants and fish and streams. Yes, city is like ocean.

Thank you Irina and Nona. I never had the idea of sea life with this piece, but now you mention it, you could see a seahorse in this glasswork. :)
