Artful AND useful:
I hammer copper into a bowl shape, forming details like the bottom and edges with specialized steel stakes and hammers. Then I fuse powdered glass to both sides of the bowl, building up thin layers and firing each in a 1500 degree kiln.
I draw the image by hand, freestyle, directly on the bowl on a base coat of white glass using graphite and special enamel pencils and paint. The final steps are fusing clear layers of glass over the drawing, ensuring the one of a kind image is embedded in the bowl.
One of the first plants to proliferate after a forest fire, fireweed is a lovely symbol of regeneration and resilience. When I've hiked through areas devastated by wildfires, the glorious pink fireweed set against charred black tree stumps, gives me hope and reminds me that sometimes renewal requires desolation. It can be hard to see light without darkness and vice versa - one gives us an appreciation for the other.
While backpacking section J of the PCT I became particularly smitten with the details of this flower, the way it ages up the stem from flower to flower and the curling of its stamen were fascinating. I wanted to capture this unusual aspect of the flower. There is much beauty in the odd curiosities of nature.
Rainbows and wildflowers = love and equality meet curious beauty. When the grey becomes oppressive, a spark of color gives hope.
