Leaf Plate—Using a Sand Mold with Recycled Window Glass and Enamels

Design by Richard La Londe

The mold is made by mixing the sand/clay mixture with water and shaping with hands and others implements such as metal spoons. Details are worked into the mold using sewing needles and various diameters of wire. Step-by-step instructions for determining the tin side of recycled glass, using the glass to form the plate, and decorating the plate with enamels is also included.
