A Work in Progress

Green is not a color I normally gravitate towards. Yet for some reason I decided I wanted to make a bowl from various shades of green. I had originally planned to place the top layer on a clear base but it just didn't pop. Nothing I had worked quite as well as the white paper I was using to create my personal pattern. So today I stopped at Wired Designs Studio to pick up a sheet of lacy white to serve as a back drop. Problem solved the piece was set for a firing just a couple hours later. This will be the second firing for some of these pieces which were made in advance.  If all goes as planned tomorrow I should open the kiln to a 19" round tile ready to be cold worked.

Window Flower
6x8" Kilnformed and Etched Glass, Silver and Mirror


Lovers, forget your love,
And listen to the love of these,
She a window flower,
And he a winter breeze. 

When the frosty window veil
Was melted down at noon,
And the caged yellow bird
Hung over her in tune,

He marked her through the pane,
He could not help but mark,
And only passed her by
To come again at dark.

He was a winter wind,
Concerned with ice and snow,
Dead weeds and unmated birds,
And little of love could know. 

But he sighed upon the sill,
He gave the sash a shake,
As witness all within
Who lay that night awake.

Per chance he half prevailed
To win her for the flight
From the firelit looking-glass
And warm stove-window light. 

But the flower leaned aside
And thought of naught to say,
And morning found the breeze
A hundred miles away.
