Twilight in the Trees
Art Glass Wall Sculpture
Created by Alice Benvie Gebhart
This fused-glass panel is a one-of-a-kind original. All the color in this landscape 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 within a transparent cast glass border. Gesture lines in gold and black are fired into the glass surface to add detail and movement. The piece is displayed and adhered onto an aluminum base, ready for hanging. The base is made to be projected slightly from the wall to add to the dimensional look. The interior glass panel is framed by an etched and molded cast glass border. The border adds a thickness and richness to the overall display.
