"At His Feet"
"At His Feet"
This is my interpretation of Our Almighty God, the Creator of all.. The roots symbolize that everything and everyone was created by Him. The Figure in the foreground is someone that we can all relate to at one time in our lives or another, when we feel so broken. The only way to rise up from the ashes is to bring it to Our Father and lay it at His feet. 12"x6"x1" Stacked Imagery techinique each layer has been fused seperatly then all 9 layers were then fused together. This gives a 3 dimensional effect. This piece speak to me. $279.

I love this collection of French Vanilla, Pea Pod Green, Steel blue, Reactive Ice and vitrigraph. The Part Sheet has a 3-D effect it looks as if there are seeds trapped in the glass just waiting for water, food and the sun to spring forth ...Just like in all of us, if we are watered and washed clean, fed the Word of God and accept His Son then we too can live up to our full" Potential" and His divine destiny He has always planned for us Large Channel 23.5"x 6.5" $149, Med Channel 14.75"x 6.5" $129, Small Channel 12.5"x4.25" $79

“We Are All Connected”
The background of the piece is made of three strips of ivory glass in a row; they represent The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. The clear strips in between symbolize when we distance ourselves from the Trinity. There are two places where four ivory strips were used; representing the times we think we know more than God. The one large clear strip symbolizes the times when we question if God actually exists. All of humanity is depicted by the orange; the aqua is the washing away of all our sins through the acceptance of God’s only Son. The multi colored pieces represent when humanity repents and the Blood of Jesus is applied to our lives and we live under Grace and Mercy. On the inside of the vessel the strips are wavy and textured, this symbolizes how we feel on the inside; like we are off our path, misguided and lost. Actually these trials of life add to our substance and strengthen our Spirit Man. On the outside of the vessel the strips are perfectly straight and smooth; this is how Our Heavenly Father sees each one of us –“A perfect and completed work”, His masterpiece! 18" diameter $398

"Be Ye Not of This World"
Based Romans 12:2 Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. $129

If we reflect and examine ourselves and search our hearts we can honestly see what we radiant to others. What are you radiating?
Functional Art
 Functional Art is art that is not only beautiful to look at, but also has a functional and practical use as well.
 
I hope you enjoy this Art form as much as I love creating in this medium. Glass is actually a liquid even though it appears to us as a solid, I bring it back to a liquid state and fuse it into a solid again. The process is lengthy and unpredictable at times, which I find challenging.
 
The metamorphic stages and process of Full Fused Glass reminds me of how  are;
  • We come to this earth from God (Solid state of raw sheet glass)
  •  Then we are given the gift of Free Will from Him (The Designing and Techniques Process/Phase)
  • To be able to discover that when we are fused together  we can become something so beautiful, a mosaic,fused and united by our Creator (Fusing: to turn glass into a liquid state so it can be able to reshape,reform  and react, and connect  to other surrounding glass) .
  • (Cold working,Slumping )  Knowing and discovering that God has always had a purpose and plan for our lives. Allowing Him to transform us  into something that He is able to use.
  • The Finished Vessel. A Vessel that is filled  to over flowing with His  Love ,Grace,Mercy and Blessings .Our overflow is then  able to bless others.
