Glass Bear with flowers by Marcy Lamberson
It's Spring. And as I always do, I get a little flower obsessed as my trees and shrubs are blossoming here in Atlanta. The azalea, dogwood, cherry trees are done and just the rhododendron have lovely blooms.
When I have a lot on my mind, often it translates into glass. So recently, I've been making my glass bears with flowers inside of them.
I've always loved the encased florals (as glass folk call them) and it's a nice challenge to add that technique with sculpture. We don't usually see that, so it's a little different and a lot of fun to learn. And honestly, I have a long way to go. These are nice, but I am working towards "spectacular", which might take a few years. Lol, I'm not in a rush, but do want to make different kinds of flowers inside of beads.
If you have spare time, I have a 48 hour live auction starting in one of the Facebook private groups, "Limelight" starting tomorrow- Tuesday 9am EDT through 8am EDT on Thursday. Here is the link if you would like to see what it is all about: "Limelight "
See you soon!
