Product description:This free-hanging artwork, titled Snow Geese, is another favorite of mine from the summer of 2007. I developed it from a royalty-free photo I found on the Internet. What struck me about the photo was the odd combination of colors in a totally natural photograph (taken at sunrise or sunset, I presume). As you can see in this photo, the soft swirl of color that runs through the sky is mirrored exactly in the water. In order to achieve this effect, I had to cut both the sky and the water from a single sheet of hand-blown antique glass. The straight line at the top of the sky was contiguous with the straight line at the bottom of the water. Once I glued the paper patterns for the sky and water to the glass, I had to cut all of the convoluted lines without a mishap. Any mistake and I would have had to go back to my supplier for a whole new (and expensive) sheet of glass. Including the walnut frame, this artwork measures 23" wide and 32" tall. It is done all in 5/32" lead came. The snow geese are overlays that are attached to the front side of the artwork with bits of double-sided sticky foam tape. All of the lead and solder and overlays are treated with a patina that has turned them a charcoal gray (flat gray, not glossy). This gives a wonderful match to the solid black glass in the artwork.
