Quintuple Glass Leaf Sculpture in Gold Fume
Art Glass Sculpture
Created by Jacqueline McKinny
This sculpture is created entirely of six individually handblown glass pieces. No molds are used. Five leaves are blown and sculpted in the torch. The back of the leaves are then flame coated in layers of pure .999 silver and 22 kt gold fume which gives the leaves an iridescent sheen. The glass leaves are then attached to a clear hollow glass core that is blown and shaped into a curl to create the finished piece. Due to the organic nature of this piece the dimensions may vary by 1". Cleaning use a dry or slightly damp cloth. No chemical cleaners.
