Design and Fabrication by Mark Jennings

An 8‑1/2" x 11" dalle de verre harvest scarecrow panel. Depth and interest are created in this three-dimensional piece using dalle de verre glass with sheet foil as a base for the layers of decorative soldering that are used to create the sculpted design. The use of dalle de verre instead of sheet glass means that no rheostat is required to regulate the soldering iron due to the thickness of the glass.
