I want to share a tiny bit about the process of creating a sculptural piece for a commission. I had a request from a client to create a piece that would honour the site of her loved one's buried ashes.
My 1st thought as I spoke with the client was to create a large sculptural heart!! I hadn't made a steel/glass heart before and I knew the potential for something awesome was really high!
I am also recently working with a new metalworker, who also happens to be my life partner, the man I love....sooooo.....this was a beautiful 1st co-creation! very symbolic....
I am sharing various pix of the stages, from design, to metal work and then fused glass and adornment....
Enjoy......and feel free to ask any questions you may have!
