Watch Over Me
Art Glass Sculpture
Created by Alice Benvie Gebhart
All the color in this fused-glass comes from layering cut glass then firing in a glass kiln. This piece has been processed multiple times, giving the work depth and dimension. Gestural lines in gold and black are fired into the landscape's surface to add detail and movement. The landscape panel is coupled with a cast glass house with images of nature enclosed within the form. The vignette is an impressionistic scene of home and place. The glass stage is firmly displayed on a cast glass base.
