So many steps between design and completion of a finished sculpture! One of the 30 sculptures we are building for my upcoming show at Missouri botanical garden is a lavender wisteria. Each Blossom is made of up to 50 hand cut pieces of lavender, pink and transparent orchid color glass, laid out as though they were brushstrokes of a painting of wisteria. They are then fired to fuse all the pieces together and embed a piece of special alloy wire for hanging. When I am on site in the garden I will build a custom copper frame to hold the blossoms and leaves. This piece will be similar to the blue wisteria photographed, the blue wisteria contains 35 blossoms, the lavender one will have 150! ... See MoreSee Less
