This piece measures 20 inches tall and 10 inches across the top. It is on display at "Artisans of Rocky Hill Gallery" in Fredricksburg Texas. The subject matter is our beloved Texas Bluebonnets. Because of the curve of the glass, pieces have to be kept to a very small size!!! Time consuming! This is made with new and vintage stained glass and many vintage glass jewels. The detail of the veining on the leaves was added with glass enamels, baked on and then applied face (painted surface) down. This protectes the painted image so it can never be scratched or marred in any way. I am now working on a larger vase and will try to display a few photos of the piece in progress.
