Newest Swan in Twelve Panels

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Cynthia Miller
A set of 12 individual panels creates a single, stunning image in this tactile wall piece, which is based on images sent back to Earth by the Hubble telescope.

Using vitreous enamel over sheets of highly polished copper, the artist captures movement and creates depth, adding nuggets of glass to catch the light and add sparkle to the composition. Each panel may go through multiple cycles of adding powdered glass and firing to achieve the final result.

Because the medium is glass, not paint, the colors are permanent, and the piece can be installed outdoors or in direct light. Ready to hang.
