A while ago my children took a art class at a glass studio and we just got our lovely creations back from the firing. Princess had done this once before and enjoyed it so much she wanted to sign up again and do another piece. This time the ladies running the studios agreed to let Little man have a try.
First the kids had to decide on a pattern for the pieces.
Little man chose cars
Princess chose the Phoenix mythical bird
Next they cut out their paper designs.
The children began to use thin pieces of metal to recreate picture design. We had aluminum, brass, copper foil and a few other items to choose from.
The metal foil was then placed between two think pieces of glass.

Princess also made a few smaller pieces to make necklaces.
