($300.00.....10" x 10"....kiln formed galss...can be presented on a pedestal or hung with glass hardward)
The posting today is a piece created for an upcoming exhibit at Hill Country Bible Church NW. It is a three layer kiln formed glass piece. The text is from Psalm 118: 19 (NLT). Happy Father's Day to all the dads.
This piece is all about color blocks of texture and contrast of opacity and transparency. The size of the blocks in this piece is what makes it so unique. It can be displayed on a pedestal or hung on a wall with glass hardware. (It was photographed laying on a white background)
The same erratic edges that are created with a palette kinfe and acrylic or oil paint were created in this piece with a palette knife and glassline paint. This is a paint that can be fired at a full fuse and looks like actual paint would look. So it's very exciting to be able to do some of the same things in glass that can be done in mixed media.
The same rules of design apply. The one important thing to take away is that color is what unites different textures and shapes. So if you're working on a piece with disparate parts and it doesn't seem to be coming together, take note of your colors and values. Nine changes out of ten, you will then be able to correct the problem. Just a few more things to think about.
Please contact me personally to inquire about this piece.
