An interesting mistake.

Sometimes, these tiles will crack during firing...kind of mini explosions, I think. Because, the pieces may end up across the kiln from each other. This piece did just that, except that one small piece was rocketed to the very edge of the kiln shelf, and eventually, the glass melted from the shelf down onto the bottom off the kiln. When I pulled the pieces out after firing, I was intrigued by the results.

The piece was of a winter tree. It had split into 3 parts. I am thinking of attaching the piece on the left to a pedestal or small canvas board...kind of little sculpture.
