As I worked on cutting out the second rose, I decided that rather than a simple design with two roses in a vase, I would create a piece similar to one I made as a beginner, based on a Rene Macintosh design. I still love that piece which hangs in my bedroom but always felt that it would be so much nicer with cranberry glass and fractured streamer. I spent a few minutes sketching out a simplified design and then started cutting. After spending most of Monday in my workshop and a few minutes today, the cutting is about one-third done. The design for the bottom half is still evolving and will take shape in the next few days.
This is a busy week and I am at Galerie Old Chelsea all day on Friday so it will probably be this time next week before I finish cutting. Photos to follow.
