Re-formed glass bottles become organic objects that dance in unison, pushed by a current of water or wind and emanating form a cross section of a base substrate with a nondescript surface whose underlying beauty is revealed by its cut and polished sides. The piece reflects my interest in the environment and nature. Found glass bottles, tiger maple wood, and copper wire. Bottles go through a flameworking technique and crackle process to reshape and texture them. The wood includes hand carving and standard wood working processes and a transparent dye finish.
