Boy oh boy what a stressful weekend it has been!
For once in my life, I was actually ready quite early with my glass pieces (those of you that know me personally will know that it's quite unusual!) - so I have been waiting on the frame. Mark, bless him, went in over the weekend to get that done (otherwise I might actually have had a nervous breakdown).
It's still at the factory, as it was given it's final coat of paint this afternoon, and I couldn't take a picture as I only had my phone, which isn't very clever in low light, but I can reveal it's a rather lush shade of green.
Meanwhile I made some extra panels as a back up, none-coloured, in case any of the enamel firings went wrong. As you know, I liked them clear, so I decided to make a second piece with three clear panels, and using the skills of Ian of Leafbone in the next studio/shed to ours, to make me a beautiful wooden stand to display them in.
Here's the result:

I think it looks rather special, and hopefully will be able to capture it in position somewhere at the Sanctuary tomorrow.
