Leaf Panel - freestanding greySold OutSale
For the modern art lover, this glass panel stands with nothing more than a metal pin fixed to the bottom. Mounted this way to allow light to pass through the piece and catch the eye.
Light grey glass as the base with 'fossilized' hemp leaves and chunks of dichroic (metallic) glass sprinkled on top of it all creates a stunning art piece for the home. Perfect for a side table or a bookshelf, the piece isn't too big, anyone can find a spot for this piece.

Fossil Vitra is a kiln-formed glass technique using natural materials such as leaves and branches, powdered glass and the heat of the kiln to create a shadow or imprint that resembles a fossil.
I utilize the powdered glass excess from my wet saw to create the fossils on the glass. I scrape it from the saw bed, dry and sift it ready for fusing. I use this glass to minimize my waste and because it's a cumulation of many colours, the end result almost looks like stone (light grey). The powder is placed right onto real leaves and a glass panel overtop, then it's heated in my kiln to burn off the organic matter and fuse the glass powder to the glass panel. The end result looks like a fossil!
