Meanwhile in the light lab ...
Rome, July 23
||This spring I was busy, among other things, learning how to make
stained glass objects in the Tiffany
style. My final project was this green glass vase in which I incorporated
some vintage suncatcher crystals.
This is a custom curtain I crafted for a client.
The picture does not
do it much justice, but here is a detail of what the bottom pieces look
like. Each strand is made up of 40/50 individual octagons and the wire
work is done in brass.
|| And here is a picture of a sun catcher that I made as a gift to a
very particular ceramics repair shop at the corner of the street I grew up
in. This is in the center of Rome and you can see the piece has been there
a while from the dust it has collected in the workshop. Apparently it
catches real sun rays only for a few hours a day and only in the winter months!
