The suncatcher measures about 5 x 10 cms.
The copper foil technique has been used to make this mouse. Glass is scored and cut by hand, edges ground and then copper foiled. Wire is used to create character and this and the foil are soldered with a mix of lead and tin to make the character strong. The final piece is then polished.
