Picture Frame to Plate

A few weeks ago, while at the Recycled Arts Festival in Vancouver, WA, I met a woman named Terra who had some large picture-frame glass panels that she had no use for.  She had upcycled the wooden frames by using them to make jewelry organizers, and the glass was left over.  I have since been using the glass she gave me in my studio, and am very pleased with the results.  Below are a few pictures of two plates I made last week using the glass from Terra.  Thanks Terra!  The circle is complete!
