"Surrender"; A Female Lampwork Glass Sculpture

This summer I started experimenting a little more with the human figure. "Surrender" was the first one. She is a kind of prototype of what is to come. A study in the movement of the human form. I am still playing with the base as well. I want to make more of a flower garden paperweight for her to stand on. So, after I made this one I purchased a "How To" PDF from Patsy Evins  to learn more about the structure of flowers in glass.

Although Patsy creates very intricate Art Glass Beads the principles still apply in larger form, and I admire her style.

This little Female Sculpture is taking a moment out of her day, to surrender herself to the moment, leaning back, soaking in the tranquility as the warmth spreads through her body.

Her arms are spread gentle and wide. Feet dancing amongst the red flowers.

Mmmm..this is how I prefer to start my day. Calm Meditation and Thankfulness for the many Blessings in my life.
