The imagery is predominantly drawn into layers of flashed glass that have been sandblasted, engraved and filed by hand with a diamond file. Only the black and yellow colours are painted and fired on. Up to five layers of glass are then plated together with copper-foil and soldered to create the final distinctive image. All of Judith’s work is shown in framed light-boxes.
