textile fused glass textile mystery
"Reflection" is a textile piece I made by printing my drawing on cloth. A version of that piece, on the right, will be up for auction in the annual SAQA fund raiser in September.
I reinterpreted that piece in glass. I made a thermofax screen of the image of the face, and used glass paint to create that image in glass. In turn, I had the glass blown by Ryan Staub into a vase.
Here is the sketch cum textile cum art glass. There is only a partial image of the face, visible in the top left photograph. I cut the face piece up and used several sections of it in this piece. The piece feels very mysterious to me, and I like that.
