Art and Earth Backlit Collage

SKU: $950.00
Art and Earth is a fused glass screen melt wall collage backlit by an LED light panel that is built into the wood framing. Not only is creating a screen melt collage a fun technique, but it is earth friendly as we use all scraps of glass which otherwise would be waste. Scrap pieces of glass are stacked on an elevated stainless steel screen in the kiln. When fired to temperatures up to 1700 degrees, the glass melts through the screen & lands on the shelf, creating amazing and organic patterns & swirls. Approx. 5 screen melts went into this piece. Each was cut down into smaller segments using a wet saw with diamond blades, the segments were arranged on a shelf in the kiln and re-fused to the point that they are joined together, but still retain the natural qualities of the heat formed texture and depth. This piece can be hung on the wall with a vertical bracket that is included and plugged in to an outlet or hardwired to a switch. It is quite sturdy when set horizontally on a flat surface, which makes it easy to make it a focal part of a dark area and conceal the cord behind it. Think under counter in a butler's pantry or in a bar / recreational area.
