5. DAY
 

To get orientation of which glass pice is background and which is flower and which is steem and so on..

we had colored the pattern (paper) before starting our project two weeks ago.
 
 


 

Here is a picture of how we numbered all the flowers with more than 1 glass piece
 


 

Here is how we organized the 6 flower cutting jobs.

 Here is the first job with 3 X 3 flowers which I have numbered #1, #2, and #3 . (see above)


 

The separated pieces are taken from the plate, cutted and sorted.

Each of the 3 flowers has to be cut 3 times (1 time for every repeat of the pattern)

The 9 flowers are signed:     1 .  1 ..  1 ...    2 .  2 .. 2 ...    3 .  3 ..  3 ...
 

..a detail, to show the way we cut.
 
 


 

the Silberschnitt running pliers I use for separating  glasspiece from glasspiece
 

 The Silberschnitt  ZAG ZAG pliers I use it to cut off the larger trash around the glass pieces,



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


 

and  different kinds of grozzling pliers I use for making the right  shape of the glass.
 
 
 
 

75 minutes later:  The flowers #1, #2, and #3 are nearly ready to be put on the lighttable.

There is one piece missing , and another piece turned out badly.

Before putting on the lighttable, I have to find and cut a

new piece of the first (bottom, left) flower # 1.

There also has to be found and cut new the missing piece of  flower number 2  (above, center).
