The background is 2 cut transparent glass circles fused together first, then the  "floral petals", center and patterned pebbles along the edges were tack fused in a separate firing for texture and dimension. 

The "floral petals" are made with pattern bars that are assembled into a flower design, the patterned pebbles were made from cut up pieces of the pattern bars   See Below for an explanation of a pattern bar.   The center is made with ground glass.  

The glass stand is kilnformed into a shape to support the sculpture with coldworking to ensure the bottom is level and sturdy.
