Product description:Reverse chipped and silvered with iridescent highlights in 1/4" black back-painted glass, New Moon floats above a perforated steel framework with 3/4" rolled edges. The inset brushed nickel "frame" adds a unique perspective, as does the underside black "mat". The back-painted glass results in a mirror finish on the viewing side, which makes the moon really "pop". About the Art: Beginning with a single piece of glass, the designs you see are chipped into the glass on the reverse side. The chipped areas are then silvered with variations in the chemical composition to produce varied reflective qualities. Additional color highlights may also be added. The Process: Once a design is chosen, a mask is hand-cut exposing the areas to be chipped. Those areas are first sandblasted to roughen the surface. Next, a protein solution is heated to a critical temperature and quickly applied to the glass. As the water evaporates from the solution, the protein strands contract, the force of the contractions so great that glass is actually pulled away from itself, although at times a little encouragement with a hammer and chisel is needed. The pattern of the chipped areas is determined by: 1. the concentration of the protein solution 2. the depth of the applied solution 3. the rate at which the solution is dehydrated 4. luck! Because of all these variables, no chipped design can ever be exactly duplicated.

Long an admirer of simple lines, gentle curves, and functional elegance, I left my profession as a California psychologist to pursue more tangible, creative interests.

More recently, I've been developing my own line of artistic and functional glass and mirror designs which you see here. I welcome your feedback and suggestions. read more
