In her drawing process, once Schaechter settles on a face or head she wants to develop further, she experiments with the position and posture of the figure. This is evident in these six small drawings.
After Schaechter scans the head and figure she likes best into Photoshop, she alters the image, here adding digital imagery of flowers and liquid pulled from online sources. Schaechter makes continual modifications—scaling up, printing out, additional drawing on top of the printed image—until she is satisfied. The drawing then serves as the basis for the final glass piece.
