Wow!
Mirka, once you have the imprint in glass, can you do more work with it?
For instance, is it possible to create color in the impring with either paint or even better inlay???

John, yes, that's what I'd like to do later. But just in glass and fused into the main color. The hot glass is difficult to manipulate, so I'm doing it one step at the time (first technique and later adding difficulty of color)
I'll be working next on a form that you can shape into a bowl - have designs ready and will start cutting glass and fusing pieces together tomorrow.
If I remember I'll take a picture of the glasses I made so far tomorrow and show them here.

thank you dear Corina! It's a form made in clay, then pressed into it a plant to make the imprint. Then I made a cast from plaster with special addition (plaster would shrink and it's too brittle in the heat of the oven) and last a sheet of glass in the plaster form was heated and then cooled in the oven. All in all about 4 days of work to produce one such glass but I love the effect :)
