Shimmer: Tōmye Neal Madison: Bird Eyes Shimmering Water
Tōmye Neal -Madison
Fused glass, glass paint, vellum, ribbon
12h x 12w inches
A bit of Shimmer treats your eyes. That’s how I felt when I saw a bundle of ribbon. You will see a smidgen of it in my Artwork Bird Eyes Shimmering Water.
With glass paint, I painted a Heron onto window glass. This is the front and first layer. Fused glass is the second layer to add dimension. The shimmery ribbons line the third layer behind the Fused glass. The entire image is shielded with vellum to protect it from the environment.
Fabricating my artwork for this theme – selected by Curator Elizabeth Addison – I felt the ribbon added a lovely glaze within the glass. Viewing it, allows my mind to ease, to marvel. It is my intent that my Bird Eyes Shimmering Water has a similar effect on its viewers.
