The leaves are the first thing I started to work on in my Nature seires. At our first show I was very exited to see peoples reaction to them as they came up and touched them and asked if they are carved wood. I loved the surprise on their face when they found out they were glass. The acid etching and texture really makes them take on a different appearance.
Recently in addition to the long contemporary leaf series I have added oak leaves to my series. These are all hand sculpted hot glass. Oak leaves can come with a small acorn, a chipmunk, a bird or just the leaf on a metal stand that I also create.
