Spectrum 96 Soda-Lime Glass
 
This piece was created & fired during Patty Gray's Advanced Fusing & Design class at Pratt.  If you ever get a chance to take a class with Patty Gray, take a B-vitamin for stamina and prepare for lift off -- this lady rocks!  You will leave class with your head chock full of incredible ideas that are bound to rocket your work into new directions!
