It is my hope to have sparked your curiousity as I have progressed through to completion of this work.
This is one of my fused art glass “panels”. I would normally say “window panel” but this one uses opalescent (non-transparent) glass: it will dazzle your eyes illuminated hanging on a wall.
This work is approximately 3 feet tall x 2 feet wide. I love being able to say these dimensions because I invested in a kiln that would allow such a large piece! (Many kilns for this purpose are much smaller.) For those of you who know me, you know that one of my mottos is “go big or go home”!
I have made a stunning colourful piece here; full of passion, even lustful in its attempt to display the full richness of these marigold, orange and flaming red hues on black fissures. They are bright and rich and deep in their own right; they require light to reflect off of them, not through them.
