Two hands cup a golden bird. Is the bird being released or protected?
Materials: fired glass, copper, beads, repurposed cosmetic case.
I created a digital image combining a photo of my hands with my drawing of a sleeping bird. A copy of the image was printed onto a decal that I fired onto the glass, permanently bonding them. There are additional layers of gold luster (China paint) and black glass enamel that were adhered in further firings.
