Walking Agave Art Glass Plant

"Walking Agave" Flamework Glass Sculpture
Walking Agave is one of those creations that just came to me in the middle of "doing".. I didn't intentionally set out to make this sculpture.. but somehow I knew where I was going with it..Kinda like it was saying, "Hey I need a little help here.. please create me" and.. so I did!

I had some new glass called," Experimental Green" that I have been wanting to try and "Mystery Aventurine" is always fun but I needed something in a WYSIWYG color.. Stays constant .. so Forest Green was my choice..

As I was making the first leaf I realized it needed something spicy and thorns seemed to be the answer. I thought the darker blue was a great contrast to the shimmery, silvery, blue.

While editing the photos I took of Walking Agave, I saw this picture.. and it gave me the title. I have a very vivid imagination and when I saw this all I could think of was a guy in pencil pants know.. the real skinny legged kind.. with a cabbage on his head. And so from that came the name of this glass plant.
