.Glass, mirrors, metal, I love just about any surface that reflects. Clear, colored, and cut glass is all about shapes, sparkle, reflections, and transparency. It’s exciting to layer one transparent color on top of another creating a third color and an interesting new shape. The distorted reflections due to the curve of the glass or metal create a repeated shape that is not obvious, and that is part of the excitement about working with these surfaces.
With Wayward Flowers, I distorted the flowers in order to focus on composition, movement and negative space.
These are made by needle and wet felting. Once they are shaped and dried, they are adhered to a needle felted background and framed in a shadowbox without glass. They are very three dimensional. With the smaller flowers felted in this method, I use them for hat, hair and purse embellishments.
