Enough coloured glass powders are incorporated to create an opaque image. The glass is sandblasted on the back with ground edges for a smooth touch. The fused glass is set in a hand made wooden base.
Three centimeters of glass will sit in the wooden base making certain the glass you see is a square image.
Wooden Bases- There are a number of wood types. The wooden base in the example is a spalted beach and cut straight. Depending on the availability I can not promise an exact type of wooden base. Usually if there is more than one type available, I will send an image of your item set in the various wooden base options via email. You can then choose your preferred base.
