Inspire Me Thursday - Glass


My normal relationship with Inspire Me Thursday involves logging on to check out the weeks challenge, seeing the work others have done in response and if/when I can responding to the challenge myself. It is typically my inspiration, so it was a great honor this past week to feel I was contributing to the inspiration of others when I saw that weeks challenge was glass. Initially I thought this should be easy for me. Just about everything I do involves glass. But nothing seemed right. I had finally decided to let the material stand on its own and as posting some pictures I had taken of bundled and labeled glass rods. I started out just adjusting the color and contrast in Photoshop and the next thing I knew I had gone from here to there. A week of thinking and deliberating solved by 1 hour of action.

Your work is so beautiful, and it's very interesting to see the raw materials. It's also fun to see how you manipulated the glass rods in another way, using an entirely different art form! I took a look at your website and your jewelry - such beauty!
