Monarch in the Shadows. The Monarch butterfly is kiln-casted and installed with a rare-earth magnet so that it is flying 3/8"+ above the background.
The Blue abstract background was made with several shades of blue, a bit of copper and white glass that was ground fine and mixed with a medium and poured in a design on top of piece of glass. Gai oil was dripped to create additional interest. The glass was then fired in the kiln to use heat and manipulation to form blended colors and crackles of texture. This glass was then tack fused to a white glass background for a glass mat/frame.
It is mounted on brushed stainless steel, wired for hanging with welded brackets to keep the artwork flat and straight on the wall with no tilting.
Dimensions: 17" wide x 14.75" x 5" deep
