Abstraxx vases

I was contacted by a very talented gentleman called Terry Hooley who is a sculptor of mainly wooden items. He wanted some of my glass to use in his pieces.

These are his creations. The lighter one is made from Cherry wood and the second is made from burr elm.

I am looking forward to making more pieces for his work and he may be able to help me with some wooden items to help me display some of my art glass work.

Another glass fan sculpture

This is a piece I have recently made using the same sort of technique as the other fan sculpture.

I love the colours in this piece and the sheen and sparkle from some of them.

Again this would look great in a sunny window on a crisp winter morning!

I am not sure whether to keep it for myself!

Please let me know what you think of these types of sculpture ornaments as I am thinking of making them as my speciality.
