And here it is, my first fused glass art piece! Other than me being my usual overly-critical self about my own work, I'm really happy with it. Now that I have a better understanding of how glass and frit work together, I may even consider creating a few more pieces with a refined version of the moss flower pattern. I still have a lot to learn about glass and kilns though. It's a really fascinating art and science.
