St. Brigid Mosaic : Part 10: Creating the magical flowers

I mentioned the pupil participation element of this project here
Every pupil was asked to draw a magical flower and I chose one from each 
age group (4 - 12 ),which I then attempted to replicate as closely as possible in glass .
The following photos detail that process , 
if you wish, you can click on links below the photos to see each one in greater detail
