Ft Worth Spring Gallery Night

I set up for the Fort Worth Spring Gallery Night with the Texas Glass Artist Association. We were invited to show our work in the old Cullen Davis Mansion. The food and drinks were great and lots of fun people participated. I sold a few items and met many kind people that I hope to see again. This is photos of my table.

"Moonlit Oak Meadow"

Here is another of the new pieces that are dimensional but don't allow light to pass through the image. The color in this one is pretty subtle and does not show too well in the photos. The image is created using paints, metallic powders, glass beads, rhinestones, and rocks.

"Bronze Duo"

After the "Bronze Oak" piece was completed the customer requested a companion piece be made to hang along with it above an antique piece of furniture. This "Bronze Topiary" was made for that request.

Primary Colors

This new piece has very bright colors - too bad it wasn't sunny for the photos! It also is very dimensional because of the use of up to 3 layers of glass plus glass jewels, broken tempered glass, beveled glass, and glass beads. Many of the clear glass background squares have very interesting textures as well as being iridized. This texture shows up a little in this detail photo.

"Bronze Oak"

This piece measures approximately 19 1/2" square. It is not transparent so needs to be displayed either on and easel or hung on the wall.
