This piece was inspired by the an image I thought so strange on snow in the desert. The way that the snow was nestled into the grooves of this cactus was so elegant and perfect it had to be encapsulated in glass as photographic image would not suffice. This little green jewel is made from both yellow and green glass fused together and then enamel applied to the surface for texture. It was done in multiple firings to capture the sharp clean lines the white created. The flat piece was then slumped into a mold to give it its final plate form.
