I was striving for flow and movement of the glass and was thinking of a river in my color and placement choices. . After cutting glass and laying out into my initial design pattern, the glass was dammed to contain it, the kiln was programmed to slowly rise to over 1700 degree Fahrenheit then I put on protective gear and opened the kiln. After observing the look at how the glass had formed in its molten state, I raked the glass to create a design with more movement and flow, then the glass was annealed and cooled, coldworked and finished into a design. I fused the result to a Blue glass to create a glass border/mat.
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.
