Yes, that is the problem with much of my work. The majority of it is carved glass that is 1/4" thick and reverse painted in a manner that any highlights are picked up by the way the piece is lighted. It is very hard to photograph and get this across.
I will upload the red vessel on my page. Thank you for letting me know this.
Thanks for responding Pamela- I didn't realize Moonlight was glass. I'm sure both of these pieces have a strong sculptural presence in person. I suppose that's the drawback of viewing them online. But I'm happy you shared your work, and hope to see more. The red vessel thumbnail doesn't appear to have a larger version in your folio of images?
Thank you for your gracious comments. The raised areas are from the etching and not from the paint. This piece was not etched deeply, whereas the etching on Dining by Moonlight was carved deeply into 1/4" glass.
The Butterfly Days vase is an elegant form, mimicking the shape of the decorative butterfly etched onto its surface. The ornamental motif has Art Nouveau feel, elongated and organically derived. I find it interested that the palette of the piece overall is fairly muted, as the fantastic specimen could have lent itself to a more colorful display. The green veins inside the butterfly handsomely extend into the background; connecting the naturalistic elements. It looks as though some of the painting could be raised, but maybe that’s just the distinction between the opaque paint on the etched vessel. Dining by Moonlight is a surprisingly lighthearted piece by contrast. While it begins as a utilitarian plate, the black landscape at the bottom nicely cuts up the general circular shape and offers a sculptural presence.
