Every now and then, an artist has an overwhelming urge to recreate an inspiration from nature, but not in the way the rest see it. Such is the case with my Jelly Bean Garden. The flowers are fictitious but my creative sense couldn’t be checked! This striking fused glass art piece combines elements including Murrini glass, Vitrigraph, stringers, various sizes of glass frit, fused glass puddles and an iridescent base glass. While the subtle shimmer of the iridescent base is difficult to capture on a camera, one should still be able to spot the bumblebee and spider. This handmade art panel measures 5” wide by 8 1/2” tall.
