Meet the newest creature in our home, a crane I fashioned out of fused glass. My husband quipped that I should name him "Frasier" - after the TV character Frasier Crane (Crain???). Isn't he funny (my husband, not the crane).
One of the two layers in this piece is iridescent glass, but I cannot determine yet whether that iridescence will show. The glass will be placed over some image of the crane, on fabric -- nature of the image = yet to be determined.
For this piece, I will be using the kimono/obi fabric I purchased a few months ago. I am also going to try my hand at threadpainting, to make another Frasier (recalling that in the non-human world, boys are prettier than girls, so the colorful cranes are indeed male).
So, my ingredient list for this piece is developing -- yesterday I made some thermofax images of the crane as well, having manipulated the original photo digitally...a lot in my toychest right now.
