Fusing Stacked Mosaics--The Hawk

Red-Tailed Hawk Fused Mosaic Panel
Normally I would not show a piece as it was being built but this has been such an interesting WIP that I thought I would post a before and after.  I have been building the piece for 3 days now and have only to fill the gaps with frit before I fire it.  It is a stacked mosaic, consisting of two base layers of sky blue and clear with two to three layers stacked to define the bird and tree.  I have also used rods cut on end for the leaves with bits and stingers to define the aspen tree. 

I will post the fused panel in a couple of days to show the result.
