How Michelle Makes Her Work:

Michelle cuts her glass, layers it, and then includes torch-manipulated strings of glass, and many other forms of glass, that she combines to achieve the final piece. The piece is fired up to 1,465 degrees over a period of 11 hours. She then removes the piece from the kiln and finishes the edges and drills holes if necessary. The piece is placed on a form that Michelle has made specifically for the piece and fired again over 9 hours.
