Natural Beauty

A botanical theme! This is a striking fused art glass panel – these pictures don’t do it justice.

The leaves are a separately made combination of persimmons and dark amber cathedral glass providing their lovely striped effect. They remind Greg of variegated Cana Lilly leaves! Thicker than the green stems, they provide a rich and dimensional texture to this colourful and whimsical piece.

The stems and flower-like enhancements are fused from various green shades of green and multiple textures of frit, further enhancing its 3-dimensional nature.

Natural Beauty measures 24″ x 23″ and is designed to hang in a well-lit window or back-lit space. This particular work also looks lovely front-illuminated or in a natural indoor setting.

Please note that Greg does not commit any work to a hanging method until it is sold. Greg will consult with the purchaser to determine the most suitable method, given the work’s desired location. Installation charges may apply depending on the method chosen. Please Contact Greg to discuss in more detail.

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.
