The Beauty of Autumn
Art Glass & Metal Wall Sculpture
Created by Leslie W. Friedman
Friedman's fused glasswork is an expression of the beauty of nature in its many organic forms and celebration of color. This pieces has two 1" glass cast slabs made of opaque and transparent sheet glass and frit which attributes to the depth and texture achieved. There are 10 plus layers of glass and 40 hours of kiln high temperature firing time for each glass piece. The artist enhances each piece with a metal sculptural frame and reclaimed wood which also adds to the three dimensional aspect. When front lit the glass tree forms will actually shadow within the glass and the metal sculpture creates shadows on the wall to create a beautiful organic impressionistic image of nature.
