Foiling the edges

This shows me working with my wooden fid. After I have taped the foil to all the edges of the glass, I go back over it with my fid to smooth out any wrinkles. The foil is the first layer of foundation that holds all the glass pieces together.
These are all of the foiled pieces that will make the lampshade portion of my Sagebrush Lamp. "Found objects" or glass from broken vases, plates, or bowls are harder to fid than flat pieces of glass because of all the shapes and curves.
