Spark: Next Steps

Once we finished placing the glass pieces to the fiberglass mesh, we put the sections together and confirm we were happy with the design.
Next we ordered, measured and cut sections of cement-based backer-board. We transferred the sheets of glass on to the boards and trimmed the glass to fit the correct shape. The top is curved, the same as the walls along the planetarium.

Once the pieces were trimmed and fit the backer-board, we mixed thin-set and troweled on a layer before bringing over the entire sheet of glass. The wood skewers mark the holes for screws. Each 5’x3′ panel has 6 holes for screws.
