"Sun"

This is a pane made by a group of Y6 children to be part of a Legacy Window, to mark their transition from Primary School. The theme of the window is space, as we were lucky enough have Dr Thirsk, a real astronaut visit us. This group of children work on creating the heart of our solar system, our sun. They selected a fiery dichroic glass as the main piece of glass, then added solar flares and a scattering of constellations. This really catches the light and has the sense of a molten ball.

Type of glass used: Bullseye, coloured and tekta glass, dichroic and vitrigraph stringers

Type of kiln used: Skutt firebox 14
