Welcome to the New Year, and a new edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly art link-up is co-hosted by Homeschool Coffee Break, Every Bed of Roses, Raventhreadsand This Day Has Great Potential. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges!

On Friday Landon and Kennady joined six other teens at a friend's home to try their hand at some stained glass technique. Each of the kids put together a small star ornament, using the copper foil technique made popular by Tiffany. I won't try to explain the techniques, tools, or even history, because that would probably make it obvious that I don't know what I'm talking about. After all, the reason my friend taught the class is that she does know what she's talking about! (And I spent most of the time visiting with the other mom and didn't pay attention anyway.)

So what I do know is that they used glass that had already been cut. They wrapped the pieces in foil and put them together in the star shape, then used a soldering iron, and finally polished their finished piece.
