This piece was constructed using almost two feet of glass. One was grey with a black swirl and the other clear. From there I cut it into 3/8" strips and placed them alternating on edge, the trick... not to break any of the patterned pieces so not to breakup the flow of the pattern! I completed it perfectly!! Approx. 55 strips were cut to complete this 7 x 10" piece and weighs 2.40 lbs. Would be wonderful to use and/or display!
