Glass Artwork Goblets Verde ‘ y Rojo 7″ x 3″ Working with colored Borosilicate is challenging, as it tends to be very unforgiving when mistreated. Through this piece I was able to mimic the look of the “Softer” glasses. Each color strand had to be individually created and then meticulously applied to the form. WOOD 8″ x 2.5″ Inspired by the intricacies of wood grain, I included thousands of tiny strands that are transparent gold. When layered upon one another, these strand give an illusion of the piece having a solid metallic Orange surface, although these strands are layered over a solid cobalt and ruby core that is apparent only when looking into the glass. I also included air bubbles that gave the appearance of knotted wood.
