This sculpture was created by Karen Ehart.
She will then craft the design elements she will use. She cuts, fires, torches and
smashes pieces of glass, using a variety of techniques to create the parts that
will make up the composition.
Karen experiments with the glass pieces in various configurations until she finds
the right look for her design. She prepares the final arrangement for the first of
several firings by stacking and inlaying the glass elements together flat on a kiln
shelf. Temperatures of up to 1500 degrees melt the layers of glass together into
a single flat piece.
It measures approximately 5'8" tall, 1'10" wide and 2'8" long.
