"Gnarled Sentinels"

I create hand-painted, multi-layered glass panels that exhibit nature in deep dimension. Using enamel applied by hand, I create depth using several techniques: layering, diminishing size and color, texture, and translucence. I typically use 9-12 layers of glass, then kiln-cast them into a solid panel after all layers are complete.
