Art Glass Sculpture
Created by Bernie Huebner and Lucie Boucher
Finally a collection of bonsai trees that requires absolutely no maintenance. Made entirely of a wide variety of kinds of art glass and kiln-fusing techniques, "Bonsai" offers six classic bonsai styles: (from left to right) a semi-cascade pine, a miniature rhododendron, a "sokan" (father-son or mother-daughter) Japanese maple, a juniper grove, a root-over-rock ficus, and a windswept juniper. Also executed in glass are a selection of bonsai pot styles, leaves, needles, tree barks and mosses. The glasscape is illuminated either day or night by a light, recessed into the rear of the hardwood base, which is reflected off the wall behind. Limited edition of 25. Signed and numbered on the certificate of authenticity. Minor setup required.
