The delicate glass leaves on this bonsai are individually hand cut, hand painted, fired and slumped in a kiln, drilled and wired. The hand twisted copper wire tree wraps around a limestone rock from Door County, WI, and is balanced with a mortar base covered with felt to protect your surface. I applied a aged blue patina to the copper wire. A glass swing sways gently in the breeze.
Doesn't this take you back to carefree days?
This piece is approximately 14"h x 16"w x 14"d.
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.
