Waiting for Alice 1989

This panel incorporates the technique of glass enameling. Unlike glass paints which are opaque, glass enamels are transparent colors which can be painted onto pieces of clear glass. Each enamel matures at a slightly different temperature in the kiln, and is therefore applied and fired separately. It is a labor intensive process, but it allows the artist to include many detailed areas of color without needing to separate them with lead lines.
