Fossil Vitra
fossil-vitra-2

This is work from back in 2003. It was created by sifting powders onto an actual leaf, placing it on a piece of fiber paper and then firing. One nice (and accidental) touch was that the thicker parts of the leaf - like the stem - made a small dent in the fiber paper before burning away. The melted glass filled the shallow dent - giving the final piece some real leaf-like dimensions.
