Final Design Setup
As you did with the first pass, re-arrange the bars and fuse them back into a slab. This time, though, you can add some visual interest to the piece by including a small window. Here’s a photo of the work being assembled:
Since the bars are 3/8 inch tall, the window will need to be made from three standard 1/8 inch thick layers of glass to ensure everything is the same height. Also, note the green strips used to frame the window – this not only looks good, it will keep the design crisp when it fuses.
Here’s the final setup, ready to be dammed and fired:
Fuse the glass using the same schedule in the previous firing.
