I use actual ferns, leaves and feathers to create my fossilised works. The leaves are pressed, then coated with layers of silver mica and coloured glass powder then fused under a sheet of glass. The organic matter burns away at the high kiln temperatures required to fuse glass, and the mica and glass powders fuse with the sheet of glass to retain the intricate detail from the original leaf or feather, hence the use of the term "fossilised".

In a subsequent firing I add crushed glass frit to add additional texture and interest to the background surrounding the leaf.

These fossilised kowhai leaves are fused onto a deep green glass which has a subtle sparkle to it.

The frame can either be free standing or hung on a wall. The frame is 180mm square to the widest point, and the fused glass centre measures 100mm x 100mm.

I also have a Silver Fern and Tree Fern listed - they would look great clustered together in a row of 3.
