But the smooth and shiny and translucent qualities of glass do intrigue me. I love having a bit of it around to catch the light. And glass always catches my eye when thrifting for home accessories...
I love the graphic quality- and I'm thinking this may be the year I do this with my students. I've been collecting thrifted picture frames with glass for this very purpose.
This is a little collection of glass- the commercial pieces are thrifted, and the two art glass pieces are ones made by art students from my college days. (I've had those for over 35 years!)
I have this small mobile hanging near my desk- it was purchased at a local fair when our kids were little. I remember that the artist had very large pieces too, but they were way out of my price range. I love the smooth feel and the quiet tinkling.
These two pieces belonged to Dave's grandmother. I don't know how old they are, or the story of where they came from. They look like they might be from the 20's?? I love the colors...maybe they'll inspire a quilt.
Make it a Wonderful Day!
