Design, Fabrication, and Text by Vicky Kloppenborg


A 2" x 5" wall hanging created using fused pieces of broken, recycled glass. Small panels of various coordinating colors and textures of glass are created by cutting them from scrap pieces. Some panels are also made by crushing reclaimed glass into coarse frit, which is then fused into one piece and cut to size. The hanger and decorative elements are created with copper wire, and the panels are joined together using the copper foil technique and copper U-came.
