I was delighted that one of my visitors to Art Weeks decided to make a glass piece using the copper foil method (Tiffany style). She took to glass cutting really well and learned the different techniques required through the day.
First Ann had to design her piece and draw it out full size. She then cut the glass, used the grinder to trim the edges and corners and gave the pieces a good wash.
Then Ann wrapped the edges of the glass pieces with copper foil. Then she soldered the pieces together and was thoroughly delighted with the result. She used nuggets and flat glass, some textured, some patterned glass. Here’s her result.
If you’d like to come along and make a personal, unique piece of artwork do get in touch.
