In the presentation of this fused glass leaf series, I considered the combination of translucent light direction and the elegance of falling leaves. Glass on glass and a deeper shadow box, allow light to pass through and reveal some surprising effects. I intend for the viewer to experience an empowering moment of beauty in these leaves and then be able to feel the grace of autumn.

Recto-Verso Shells : New England Series

Seashells Recto-Versa Progress

This is the beginning of a series of ‘Recto-Verso’ Shells. ‘Recto-Verso’ is a term that refers to text written on the front and back sides of a leaf of paper. This series has been fired so that both sides of the fused glass piece exhibit the natural beauty in shells.
The New England Series replicates the subtlety in color change and muted tones from our local shores. I also have in mind the fit and feel of them as they sit perfectly in your hand. They function well as small dishes.
Work from this series can be purchased in Verne’s Studio gallery or at other locations listed on the Gallery page.
