"Checkers" and large "Yucca Vase"

Here are the last two vases for a while. Now it is on to a couple of commission windows and more windows for the new Fredericksburg Gallery. Artisans of Rocky Hill Gallery has moved to a new location in downtown Fredericksburg in one of the historic buildings. It is absolutely gorgeous and I feel very fortunate to show my work there. If you are ever in that area of Texas it is well worth the time!

New Vases

These are several of the new vases I have completed lately. The large square one (pictured by itself) is titled "4 Seasons in the Orchard" and each of the 4 sides depict the same apple tree in different seasons - winter, spring, summer, and fall.

"Primary Colors II" & "Summer Hummer"

Here are two new pieces that will be shown at Artisans of Rocky Hill Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas. Primary Colors is created using all types of textured and iridized glass, vitreous glass tiles, vintage rhinestones, glass beads, and safety glass. It is very dimensional and has a lot of texture to it. Summer Hummer has a very colorful border made from glass tiles. The rest of the image is created using stained glass.

"Bluebonnet Fields"

This is a small piece - measures approx. 11" x 14". It is a combination of both my glass on glass technique to create the border and my multi-layer minature technique to create the image in the center. It will be shown at Studio 2600 Gallery in Dallas.

This is a companion piece to the "Primary Colors" window shown earlier on my blog. There will be a total of three of these windows when the commission is complete.

"Mardi Gras" and "Bubbles"

Here are a couple more fun vases. They are made using glass beads and vintage glass and crystal rhinestones. "Bubbles" measures approx. 9 1/2" tall and "Mardi Gras" is 11 1/2" tall. Today is somewhat overcast so the colors did not photograph as bright as they really are.
