Decorative Music Themed Glass Plate from Botanical Glass Studio

Music Glass Plate

Description: After years in the graphic design field, Ann (the artist) finally began working full time at her art in 1997, moving into fused glass in 2000, approaching it very much like she did painting. "My work, like my experience of life, is about layers. I layer color over color and glass over glass, opacity over transparency. Just as joy layers over sorrow and today over yesterday, in my art patches of brilliant colors peek through darker ones like sweet secrets heard on a summer day, remembered in winter. So all my experiences come together in each work. Brilliant background colors express the joyous freedom of my childhood Idaho summers; layers with years of work and study, loss and gain. The tactile top layer expresses the now- taking us right up to the present, which will never be here again."
Donated by: Dan & Nancy Colvin
