Fused Glass Sun Catcher - "Desert Southwest Cactus Landscape"
Desert Southwest landscape with 2 varieties of cactus including a saguaro with flowers. This beautiful hand crafted sun catcher is made with iridescent glass and hand selected pieces to form the flowers, grass, ground, and other elements.The base iridescent glass has red, green, gold, blue, and purple sheen when seen from various angles. This piece has more purple and gold sheen. Firing at high temperatures in the kiln also creates a unique radiating pattern around surface elements.
Each of my glass art creations is a unique pattern. It is fired to 1,400 degrees in my kiln, then slowly cooled through a proper annealing stage to maintain durability and strength.
The iridescent sheen does not photograph nearly as well as our eyes see them. Most people feel they look far better in person. Feedback on these has been awesome. I have included several different photo angles to try to capture some of the various color displays.
