Giddy Up!

A bit of information about the focal:  The lovely base color is a mixture of purple Effetre glass.  Stringers were used to "paint" the Appaloosa, much like one would use a pencil to sketch on paper.  The high relief was sculpted using my favorite stainless steel wax carving tool.  To give you an idea of size, the focal measures 25mm in diameter.

If you are in the Phoenix area and are interested in learning how to create lampwork glass beads, contact the Mesa Arts Center for my Tuesday night class.  Have a great weekend!
