I found a shaft of wheat growing in my garden the other day and decided it would look good in glass. I used the "fossil vitra" technique (http://fusedglass.org/book/export/html/550) but I used two sheet of glass and then I fired it again with clear powder frit on top. Enjoy!

Love this piece - how cool to be able to fossilize something from your own garden!
