Schaechter describes how, as a younger artist, her small light table forced her to stack pieces to make room to work. She became excited by her ability to alter imagery by layering. Over time, layering has become central to her work, sometimes stacking as many as five pieces of engraved and painted glass to achieve her desired effect.

These three pieces of glass demonstrate her innovative approach to using a flat diamond file to engrave multiple layers of colored glass. This time-consuming process allows Schaechter to achieve her nuanced, rich tonalities.
