New Beginnings has hand carved zebrawood and fused glass baby turtles on a beach of heat fused crushed glass. The babies emerge from the sand and make a mad dash to the safety of the ocean where they swim off to distant points. The frame is maple with a purple heart accent. Overall size is 22" X 29"
I created the beach by mixing different size and colors of crushed glass then heating the piece in the kiln until the grains just began to fuse to each other and the glass background. It really does have the look and feel of a sandy beach. Note the two turtles digging their way out of the sand.
My artwork never wants to stay within the confines of the frame
Taking a moment to check out his new world
