4.11.2014 - transparent glass & light


I'm truly beginning to see a pattern that wasn't so evident until tonight when I was scrolling through a folder containing older images.  Each spring we revel in the glory of seeing & feeling sunshine - to see this light that not only awakens us, but all else that had also been dormant all winter long.

While I admit that I love cooler temperatures, this winter made me weary.  So now we revel in the celebration of light & the colors of life.  

I am always drawn to transparent glass at this time of year, where I'll find that some colors are light & airy while others are more highly pigmented and do not so easily allow for transmission of light and the casting of colored shadows... so I thin the glass.  I build tall thin disks & tiles, or thin walled bubbles of color which allow for this celebration of color.
