A Measure of Happiness
Art Glass Wall Sculpture
Created by Alice Benvie Gebhart
This pair of fused-glass panels is a one-of-a-kind original. All the color in this diptych comes from layering cut glass then firing the glass in a kiln. This piece has been processed multiple times in the kiln, giving the work depth and dimension with a clear and textural border. Gesture lines in gold and black are fired into the glass surface to add detail and movement. The piece is displayed using a brushed aluminum base, ready for hanging. The base is made to be projected slightly from the wall to add to the dimensional look. The glass panels measure approximately 11"H, 5"W each and are placed on the aluminum to reflect the silvery surface.
