Art Glass Wall Sculpture
Created by Michael Dupille
The title "Tree Love" evokes our relationship with nature and how it inspires through beauty and design. It is a one of kind piece using specialized kiln formed glass techniques. The image is created by the use of a glass paste a (powdered glass added to a bing agent) applied with a palette knife and piped with a squeeze bottle to create line elements and detail. The work is fired multiple times. Other special effects are added by applying various sizes of frit (crushed glass) layered over previously fired work to create dimension and depth. The lines on the tree trunk are textured areas of tactility. The piece is ready to hang and easily cleaned using a soft cloth and a non abrasive cleaning agent.
