Blasted Rainbow Leaf Wall Panel
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.
This is a slight variation on the technique where I use a real Hemp leave as the resist for sandblasting. The fresh leaf is glued to the metallic glass and the coating on the glass is 'blasted' away very quickly before the leaf falls apart - a delicate balance!
