I developed this piece to evoke a waterfall after admiring a number of Japanese woodblock prints depicting water. To make the piece, I cut multiple shaped layers of glass to represent water and rocks, filled the cracks between the shapes of each layer with powdered glass, and then full-fired each layer as a solid piece. I then full-fired all these layers together, with a chemical agent painted on the bottom layer to create the bubbles flowing through the waterfall. To add texture to the water’s surface, I tack-fused various colored stringers (glass pulled into interesting shapes with a blow torch) on top. For the base, I blocked out an empty rectangular shape and filled it with a mix of recycled glass.
