Been wanting to do this set for awhile, and finally got it completed today. They are all hung and in place in my kitchen.

Details: 5x7 glass on glass mosaic, stained glass, tempered glass, millefiore, glass rods, grout and sealer. Did the fill with TG so you could see the wall color of my kitchen through it.

Completed veggies are done!




Each one separate:








Although they look crooked in the pictures they are straight on the wall. Smiley Comments and questions always welcome!

  you did the base on glass?  I didn't know you could DO that! Holy Smokarolly these are awesome.  Using clear glass as the base just opened up a world of possibilities for me and a stained glass look that I love but don't have the experience or wherewithall to do.  I want to try something like this... Wink Grin Love them...nice work.
