All That Matters
Art Glass Wall Sculpture
Created by Alice Benvie Gebhart
All the color and atmosphere in this piece comes from layering cut glass, then repeatedly firing the glass in a kiln. This piece has been processed multiple times in the kiln, giving the work depth, atmosphere, and dimension. Gold leaf etched to the reverse of the panel gives further depth and light. Textural and gestural lines in gold and black have been fired into the glass surface to add detail and movement. The art is hung using stand-offs, which take the glass about 1 1/2" away from the wall, emphasizing reflective quality. All hardware is included and is simple to hang.
