Leaping Hare in Fused Glass

My first glass fusing project, as a sort of homage to Catherine Hyde.

The more eagle-eyed will notice a bump in the dark green glass on the right hand side of the panel.  In our class we stick the glass together with clear nail varnish; I bought Maybelline because it was on special offer and cheaper than the cheap stuff, but it has minerals in it, apparently, and when the glass is fired they can make it bulge. No matter - I shall be investing in some cheap rubbishy stuff instead for future projects and thinking of my protuberance as a mole hill or, better still, a bronze-age burial tump.
