2023 is turning into a year of technical challenges which translates much longer time needed for designs to evolve and to cut, and sometimes re-cut the glass. These panels were inspired by a piece of ironwork I saw in a museum in London a number of years ago. Neither is anything like the ironwork whose multiple, flowing curves ended gracefully mid-air. Glass has it's own rules and the lines must always flow either into another or off the edge of the piece. Concept drawings quickly become suggestions and designs change right up until the last piece is cut. The circles in 'I Dared' were cut from Freemont glass which is hand-rolled, exotic, and intriguing. The paisleys in 'Dream Weaver' were cut from youghi which transitioned from nearly-clear, through white and pink, to the intense and dramatic reds and merge at one point almost into a yin-yang. 'I Dared' sold quickly at the Galerie Old Chelsea. Dream Weaver is at the Galerie now waiting for the right person on the right day.
