I recently took a class on using crash glass (tempered glass) because I wanted to teach a new class AND I wanted to use up the tons of clear art glass scraps I have.

My Prep Work...
Notice that I still had not committed to a DESIGN, just to 'possibilities' and a color palette.
My Minimalistic Design...
I made a few last minute design changes after this but I did NOT get all OCD about it!
Notice that this is not real busy or complicated...just balanced and fun to look at.
Wrapping-up the Project...
Overall, it really is a collage with a clear glass mosaic over it.
The Completed Project...
Lastly, I painted the tray edges to match. Pretty cool, eh?
I create mosaics by using reclaimed, recycled, and re-purposed materials.
