|"Ruby" in the meadow with wild daisies
Steel and Fused glass with lots of heart and soul
ahhhhh, dear sweet Ruby......i can honestly say that i cried as she went out the laneway on the way to her new home in sunny manitoba.....it was kinda surprising to me, the tears.....of course i am totally thrilled that she has found a new home on the great plains of this country.....where she truly belongs......she will feel right at home in the tall prairie grasses, with the extraordinary, perfectly blue, expansive prairie sky.....hmmmm.....i love the feel of the prairies myself.....i imagine the time when buffalo roamed in herds of 30,000 or more....absolutely amazing to contemplate this......ruby, sweet ruby....you have touched my heart in completely unexpected ways.... thank you for sharing some time with me here by the sea!!!
i just love glass!!!! i am sharing a pic of "Ruby"....she is a beautiful prairie buffalo....bison to be totally correct...but i really like the word buffalo...in Indonesia there are many words like this...names like kalibukbuk....and words such as hati hati...this means "use caution"....but it is a fun way of saying it....hati hati when cutting glass, or you will be bleeding from super sharp glass cuts on your fingertips in no time!!!
Here are a few new small dishes....there are fish, chicks and pineapples....the fish and pineapple have been long time motifs in my glass...in the top pic of tulips in my garden you will see a pineapple garden stake, from several years ago....this year the pineapples have made it into bowls and platters ....they are very bright and summery looking...i'll have more images of these as they come through the fusing process in the next few days....
and then these bottom 2 pix....well, i just love colour, and coloured glass, and also the way the light shines through and adds a whole other dimension to the art work....it bring me joy to see the colour just shining on through...hhhmmmmm.....yum...
