Fusing Ghost Images Into Glass

I’ve been experimenting with firing leaves into glass to leave a ghost image. I fused a piece of fern leaf between two pieces of glass overnight and it’s worked brilliantly. The heat burnt away the leaf and has left a gorgeous, detailed ghost image. Am now very excited about the design possibilities.

    Wow that’s brilliant – I tried that a little while ago but ended up as massive bubble in the middle of the glass :):)

  2. I love this. My daughter’s name is Fern–pls let me know if you ever offer any pieces like this for sale.
