Flamework Black Glass Shark Sculpture

Flamework Glass Shark Sculpture
Black Glass Shark Swimming Over Finger Coral... 2013
Sleek Black Glass Shark with a warm caramel and black stripe around its body. It is swimming over a butterscotch glass finger coral and sitting upon a frit implosion paperweight with black clay bottom.

This is something new I am trying with the clay bottom. It kind of gives it more stability and girth and just adds another area of interest. I like how how it looks and it is fun to break out the clay again.

I made this black shark and a teal glass shark like it in May. I think the fact that the sun was out and the days were getting warmer made me miss Maui.. so.. I of course thought of the water, the ocean the sharks.. voila  .. shark art!

I kind of feel like this is a window in to the world under the sea. A Predators life. swimming along the ocean floor in and out of the coral reef in search of his next meal. What magnificent creatures they are!!

Art Glass Flower Sculpture
Flamework Glass Sculpture.., Peaceful Flower.. Wendy Williams.. 2013

I found a new passion.. well.. it lasted for a week! Making Flower Sculptures. This is the first of two that I Titled; "Peaceful Flower" 
Peaceful Flower.. Wendy Williams 2013
My inspiration is the Spring and all of the wonderful blooms that I see waking my dogs every day.

I am so fortunate that I can go on daily dream journeys with them and smell the wonderful scents of honey suckle and jasmine. I get to see all the changes in the landscape as it appears and disappears every new season. Or sometimes from morning till noon, like the mushroom village that sprang up over night around my salvia, then disappeared by lunch time. It was the perfect lilliputian village.. you know.. Gullivers Travels..

Peaceful Flower.. Wendy Williams... 2013
The shading in the petals are so unique.. they are peach, tangerine, mossy green with a bit of fuchsia thrown in for fun.. Yumm!!

Peaceful Flower.. Wendy Williams.. 2013
And just because I like Art Nouveau shapes I made the stem and the leaves free flowing organic shapes.

The flower and leaves rest upon a beveled square 3x3 piece of glass.
