Red and Yellow Buttercup
The background is 2 cut glass circles fused together first, then the flower petals and flower center were tack fused in a separate firing for texture and dimension.
The flower petals are made with pattern bars that are assembled in pairs for each petal. See Below for an explanation of a pattern bar. The center of the flower is made with ground glass and dichroic glass in between the petals for sparkle.
The artwork is mounted on hidden brushed stainless steel, wired for hanging with welded brackets to keep the artwork flat and straight on the wall with no tilting.
Dimensions: 10" wide x 10" tall x 2.5" deep
Making Pattern Bars
It takes several steps and kiln firing along with coldwork to make the pattern bars used to make this abstract art.
