(8 pieces) wall art measuring 18” h x 55” w including the space between each piece.
Inspired by my favorite coffee shop, a comfortable atmosphere along with the smell of fresh roasted coffee beans. I sat there sipping on my cinnamon latte, in my own thought, as I looked up to the freshly painted gray wall, my desire to create was overwhelming. Each piece came to me one by one as I looked across the wall. The color, shapes and flow of glass. black, white & fuchsia.
The fused glass art was created in multiple firings in the kiln up to 1465 degrees. Using several techniques to create each piece of artwork. Using powdered frit glass for the base of colors, glass dots and vitrigraph glass. each Piece takes several days to create. Once completed the glass is mounted on black ink stained Poplar wood.

The Season of the Poppy
This artwork is dedicate to all the good people that lost their way and lost their life to the opium poppy, otherwise known as Heroin.
Beautiful, delicate and powerful.
Manipulated to create a dollar.
Snorted, injected and smoked.
Addicted to escape.
Addicted to feel normal.
Addicted for more, a little more,
just a little more, until there is no more.
Now you're knocking at deaths door.
You've forgotten that love was around,
You passed it up for the rush, just a little more.
Smart, beautiful and young.
The grip was too strong.
To hold your hand, to look into your eyes,
and see your smile, never more.
In my dreams you are clean
In my heart you will always be.
