Inspiration: We have pinwheel spinners around our patio to discourage birds from coming in under our deck. they are colorful and mesmerizing.
Both artworks were made at the same time. The background is 2 cut transparent glass circles fused together first, then the pinwheel "petals" and center were tack fused in a separate firing for texture and dimension.
The "petals" are made with pattern bars that are assembled into a pinwheel design. See Below for an explanation of a pattern bar. The center is made with ground glass.
The artwork 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: 8" wide x 8" tall x 2.25" deep

It takes several steps and kiln firing along with coldwork to make the pattern bars used to make this abstract art.
