Verdant and Gold
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 1/4"H, 5 1/4"W each and are placed on the aluminum to reflect the silvery surface.
