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!
