Just because one cannot draw, doesn't mean one should not try and if all else fails, steal from mother nature! These collages are born of the desire (need!) to use an ever-growing set of glass working techniques and ideas. Often a photo of an animal or subject is used when it becomes apparent that artistic abilities aren't up to the task. Then the trick is figuring out which technique will yield the best texture, form and depth of color for a given area of the piece.
While researching subjects for the collages, inspiration struck and the sun catchers with quotes were born. These are quick little vignettes which combine tests of particular materials or techniques with the plethora of quotes that abound on the internet and are an easy way to add color and sass to one's space.
