Women Dancing in color, wood or soapstone
Two weeks ago, I looked through a plate glass window (from a hallway into an office), and I saw a framed poster on a wall. It was in a style I like in color or wood or soapstone. It was an image of women dancing.
Could I Show People Dancing In Stained Glass?
I stopped and visited the woman who sat at one of the desks in the office. I told her of my interest in stained glass and of my desire to make glass images that have that same appearance of movement. She shared with me the name of a glass artist whose work she loves.
Drawing Dancing People With A Sharpie On Glass
I came home that day thinking of how to do a similar picture in glass. Before long, I was drawing on yellow glass with a black sharpie. If I could draw, I’d probably do some amazing glass work. As it is, I’m just doing what works for me. And, I enjoy it.
Dancing Rainbow People (a work in progress)
Here is a photo of the beginning of my attempt to do a piece that looks like people dancing. I plan to work on this idea for a long time to come and do many pieces. These photos are of this piece in pieces, after foiling and before soldering, and after the initial soldering but before it’s finished. I made this up as I went along. It is an experiment.
Blue Night Lights
The dancing rainbow people piece is not finished. But, I finished a couple of blue night lights tonight. They’re similar to night lights already posted, but they’re short. At first, I thought they’d be cute. But, I think they need a little height so the bulb does not show when you’re standing near it.
