THE "G" , THIS LETTER IS A COPPER FOILED PIECE . THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS WAS TAKEN FROM ONE OF MY FAVOURITE MOSAICS THAT I MADE DUCKS AND POPPIES.

THE "L" , THIS LETTER IS A PAINTED PIECE, USING THE TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUE THAT'S USED ON CHURCH WINDOWS, THIS WAS PAINTED OVER THREE DIFFERENT PIECES OF GLASS.  THIS LETTER IS LEADED TOGETHER.

THE "A" IS MADE FROM TWO TYPES OF MIRROR GLASS AND IS LEADED TOGETHER.  I USED THE SILVER CRINKLE GLASS TO GIVE A WATERING CAN EFFECT WHICH POURED OUT THE NEXT LETTER.

THE "S" IS USING THE LEAD WORK TO GIVE IT A 3D EFFECT.  I GAVE THIS A ROUNDED TUBE LOOK THAT WAS PUMPING WATER AND BUBBLES INTO THE NEXT LETTER.

THE "S" IS USING AN APPLIQUÉ TECHNIQUE TO GIVE IT A BUBBLING WATER EFFECT.  I MADE SOME GLASS NUGGETS BY FUSING SMALL PIECES OF GLASS IN THE KILN AND THEN ATTACHED THESE WITH GLASS GLUE.

THE "M" WAS MADE USING THE MOSAIC TECHNIQUE.  I CUT UP GLASS TESSEREA AND ATTACHED USING GLASS GLUE AND GROUTED BEFORE BUILDING INTO THE PANEL.

THE "A" WAS CREATED BY SANDBLASTING SOME RED FLASH GLASS TO REVEAL A CLEAR UNDERNEATH.  THIS GLASS IS LIGHTLY COATED WITH A TOP COAT OF COLOUR.

THE "N" WAS CREATED USING THE COPPER FOIL TECHNIQUE.  I THEN ATTACHED SOME WIRE SWIRLS WITH BEADS BY SOLDERING TO THE SEAMS.

THE "I" WAS CREATED BY FUSING, DIFFERENT GLASS IS LAYERED ON TO A BASE GLASS AND PUT INTO THE KILN.  THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS WAS FROM A PANEL I MADE EARLIER, DEPICTING A CITY SKY LINE.

THE "A" WAS CREATED BY LAYERING RED, BLUE AND YELLOW FUSED GLASS AND FULL FUSING TO CREATE THE GREEN AND ORANGE COLOURS.
