A single black glass branch weaves itself between all four seasons. Each season has a symbol to represent the season: spring has a cherry blossom, summer a bee, fall an apple and winter a snowflake. Each leaf is individually cut freehand from richly colored stained glass, hand painted for detail and kiln fired. All pieces are foiled and soldered and attached to a ribbon glass back panel. Clear glass is placed on top of the leaves to keep this piece low maintenance and dust free. Professionally framed and ready to hang, this painting looks stunning in a window or on a white wall.
All of my glass art is cut freehand without patterns; every piece is unique. The paint is powdered glass which, when kiln-fired becomes one with the glass beneath it. I use the same methods and materials that have been used by glass artists for centuries.
