Hearts Abstract Macro Glass Photograph by Omaste Witkowski owFotoGrafik.comI found this picture a minute ago and thought it would be a fun Throwback Thursday post. This image is the FIRST Fine Art picture I ever sold to anyone. It was part of a series I created for the Twisp River Suites to hang in their Guest Suites when the hotel was brand new back in 2012. I had been taking photographs of Garth Mudge’s handblown glass art over the Thanksgiving holiday break in my home studio and I posted it on Facebook. Immediately I was invited to install a large collection of this series of work in 3 different businesses locally.
I printed 14 pictures to hang and on my way to the hotel I stopped by Glassworks in Winthrop to show Garth and Barry. They immediately offered to purchase the print to hang in their home. So almost by accident I sold my first picture and I was hooked! I went on to sell the rest of this series of work (in the hotel) and thus began an odyssey of creation and entrepreneurship.

        hahaha, oh no! wasn’t your glass blower using electricity on the glass to do this? If not, then I’m truly gobsmacked, as they resemble the Lichtenberg figures exactly! look them up! but they are done using electric volts placed on the object. Now I’m fascinated, because these are identical to the Lichtenberg figures!! When your friend was blowing, did these just appear? please let me know, I’m fascinated! thanks x x x

    • So now we have a mystery on our hands. My friend was truly shocked when he saw the photograph and had no idea how those lines/patterns appeared. You are correct, I looked up Lichtenberg figures and they are almost identical to what is in this photograph. Something of a natural phenomenon. So yes, they did just appear in the glass, it was not deliberate. I love this photograph even more now!
