Zebra in Stained Glass

This stained glass art work used cropped and enlarged extracts from a zebra photograph as patterns for acid etching the individual pieces of float glass. The resulting depressions were painted with glass paint and fired in a glass kiln before the raised clear surface was abraded.

There was a happy accident - the unexpected warped surface from the kiln firing schedule caused a mottled effect that I thought added to the piece.
