This is the tracing paper pattern for "Sin Eater" you can see...its a little complex! (Its something like 40" x 28" or so.) I am aiming to complete this by New Years and should have images of two finished works to post shortly thereafter!
The flowers, are, for the most part made up of two to five pieces of glass (blossom, stem, leaves)--although the smallest ones are just one piece of glass (about an inch or so). Here they are tack soldered together.
The rocks...well, they range from 1/4" to about an inch and are two layers laminated. I had help with the rocks from the fantastic Anni Wilson. Mad props to Anni!! Since she doesn't have a website here's a couple of her wonderful works. I'm sorry I only have a few photos of her work to share.

loose ends etc

Remember him? Mr Sin Eater?
Here's flowers for the garden he's going to be crawling out of.

And here's a provisional set up on the light table.

In the image below , I took the previous photo and composited it with a photoshop sketch in order to see if the image in my brain is remotely compatible with the physical real world. It is...(...thank goodness...) Don't be put off by the color. Its intentionally not tended to as when I do it in glass it will all change.

In other news:
Here's some of the black and white bird sketches colored in photoshop. Soon to be a digital print, glass, and perhaps...a fabric.

AND FINALLY--I doubt you remember the "Cold Genius" so here's the figure yet again.
The piece is more or less complete. The whole thing changed a million times... Photos soon!!
