Headed South for the Winter—Sandblasted Etching
Design by Lori Corbat Appledoorn
An 11-1/4" round, clear glass, marsh scene that is freestanding in a wooden base. This landscape features cattails peeking out of tranquil water with ducks flying overhead and a cloud floating by. The project makes a good introduction to the art of sandblasting.

Sea Turtle—Adding Details with Paint
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 6"x 9" rectangular panel constructed with copper foil showing a green sea turtle making his way across the sandy beach to the ocean waves. This reptile panel has added texture through multi layers of paint that are fired in between coats.

Nature Etched in Glass—Etched Ensemble

First Light—Making a Glass Rooster from a Kit
Design by Jeff Littlejohn and Gary Strohm
Freestanding, three-dimensional crowing roosters constructed from kits. These freeform birds show fluttering wings of glass constructed with copper foil. Careful selection of glass creates texturing on the wings and tail.
