This idea has been a fixation of mine for months. I finally got my kiln and lil' glass studio set up in my laundry room and got to work. This piece took hours and hours to cut, assemble, apply frit, etc. I am very pleased that I was able to go from my mind's eye to the eye of the dragon!

First, a close-up of the eye (Note: this piece is so shiny that my hand is reflected in the glass):

Wow!  Just....like....wow!  That is amazing! I can just imagine how many hours that took to cut and place.  What did you use for an adhesive to keep all the pieces in place before you fired it?

Fabulous job and I admire your level of patience!

@DoodleLou: I used thinned Elmer's glue to keep everything stuck in place. I'm guessing it took me about 10 hours to cut all the pieces and get everything prepared to go in the kiln. Glad you like it!
