Waynewood Elementary School

This was an ambitious project where all 700 plus students participated in creating twenty-four panels for the school cafeteria. This took a lot of planning and organization, and again, I had help from NCAGG members. We pre-cut and ground the edges of 3,300 pieces of glass. I gave a slide show and lecture on the history of glass and the possibilities of working with glass including stained glass and fused glass, (Spectrum Glass Company provided wonderful slides and posters.)

With over 23 classes to work with, I spent about 15 minutes on the slideshow/lecture, then we had a question and answer period, then the kids worked in small groups to produce the triangular panels to be fused. (Uroboros Glass donated over 600 pounds of fusible glass.) I assembled all the panels in zinc, which were then installed in the operable steel windows in the cafeteria.
