Steps 2 and 3...commission work continues

A layer of copper mesh is sandwiched between
a base layer of brown iridized glass and a clear cap.
Strips of the same mesh adorn the plaques below.

A few drops of glasstac helps hold the letters in place until
I  can safely deposit the glass in  the kiln.

The tablets and plaques are  set on some streaky glass
and some of the letters are set in place 
Embellishments  and some new letters will come next. I'll explain the meaning of the words and design in a future post....stay tuned!
