This artwork began its life as a line drawing I made during one of last summer's art festivals. I decided to represent a portion of it in glass.
First I painted the tulips onto clear glass using glass paint. Then I added a white opaque backdrop with blue and red frit. Another layer of clear glass on top and more frit--in yellow, orange, and a lighter blue. All three layers were fused in the kiln at 1485 degrees.
I put the finished piece onto a black mat with epoxy, and framed the whole art piece with another, white mat. The glass is 5" x 7"; the frame is 10" x 12".
