Cindy Hirt "The Process"
Weaving & watercolor under glass...
Weaving includes handspun cotton, leather, pine needles, Spanish moss, broom straw and palm tree bark.
Molds are made of real fish and shells. Glass is fired in a kiln at 1450 degrees capturing the details.
3-D die forms were made. Copper is pressed into the die on a hydraulic press then enameled.
Also enameled water and sky scenes.
Recently resin on glass and wood were added.
Copper is cut with a plasma torch and made verdigris.
Then all is soldered together into
