I am really enjoying going back through these early photographs and connecting with the spirit of the art. I love the light that glows through and warms the image. The various colors that will blend and soften into each other. I realized that I don’t find these colors anywhere else but in glass. They are so varied and the tones and textures move in a fluid motion. I am in awe of glass for some reason. It inspires me and awakens a spirit of creativity that I enjoy. My home is filled with various glass objects and I am surrounded by beauty every day. I am hoping to share this beauty I have found in the spirit of sharing joy with all of you. Thank you for reading 🙂 Namaste
This image started out as a picture of handblown glass created by Garth Mudge of Glassworks in Winthrop Wa. Glassworks is located downtown in the beautiful Methow Valley in Okanogan County.
It was taken with a Macro lens and is a very small section of the overall object. I am exploring hand blown glass at a macro level in the hopes of creating fine art from very small pieces of glass.
All of the colors and shapes are created from hot glass. None of these images are created from anything other than hand blown glass objects. I am removing visible specks of dust in Photoshop to present a cleaner look but the overall image is exactly what I am seeing through my camera lens.
The colors are vivid and alive due to the way that I am illuminating the glass art as I am taking the picture. In a way I am photographing the light as it passes through the object. Creating art from light or art from glass art? Either way I see creating art from life and from existing art.
