Garden Ornaments

These pieces were created using outcast glass, metal, and pottery pieces. The blue works well in a garden because there are very few blue flowers. There is a strawberry pot, two bird baths/feeders, a plant stand, and decorative spires.

"Boot Bouquet"

"Boot Bouquet" is 16 x 20 inches. It has a traditional mosaic border and boot area. The background is clear glass with multilayered Texas wildflowers. This was made using glass tiles, stained glass, vintage rhinestones, glass enamel paints, brass ball chain, glass beads, and glass globs. The flowers and leaves have many layers and the close up photos are an attempt to show the dimension. The photos taken outside allow the beautiful blue Texas sky to show through so I also took a photo with the piece laying on white cloth to demonstrate the clear glass background.
