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.

Cube Floor Lamp (The Making Of)

See the completed work here.

(2008)

This is a striking lamp made from all hand-rolled glass (mostly Uroboros) in the copper-foil method.  Lead came is used around the perimeter of both ends for a more finished look and for a small degree of shock protection.

The following Slideshow documents the basic steps in its construction and below that I have embedded a four-clip short Videoshow of some basic techniques used.

Learning the making of an artwork can stimulate one’s appreciation for it and for this exciting and stimulating medium in general- that is my goal here – enjoy!
