The delicate blue 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. The copper wire has been patina'd and buffed for an aged look. A glass swing sways gently in the breeze, a Robin's nest with blue glass eggs sits high above.
Doesn't this take you back to carefree days?
This piece is approximately 16"h x 12"w x 12"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.
