4205 Victoria Boulevaard
I was honored to receive an Award of Excellence for this piece from juror Dr. Jutta-Annette Page.
My dear friend Patti loved yellow roses. So, you could say that she designed this piece. The vessel was created from lead crystal billets requiring multiple kiln firings and processes. A silhouette of the rose design was revealed after removing the background cameo layer by sand carving. The elements of the design were then modeled by stone wheel engraving using a traditional lathe. Wheel engraving is a deliberate and intimate process. It was a gratifying experience to bring these roses to life.
