It does that because it sits on a green Davidson cloud glass plinth, Greg!
Plinths are wonderful. :smg:

Oh wow, Sue!  Wow, wow, wow!  And wow! 

P.S. Where do you display your magnificant wave?  It's the most gorgeous glass object I've ever seen.

It has pride of place on the desk in front of the window, Anik.
Sadly, this is where burglars have had a tendency to break in - and while they ignored all the art work, they did stand on the wave as they crunched the leaded glass panels, so it does have a few minor bits of damage - a couple of broken "drips".

I've found one of his sites - with lots of images of newer "waves". They are getting more and more adventurous - and more and more fail during the making.

I've plunged in and left Craig's fabulous lighted display uncommented on - sincere apologies Craig! I love the way it show the sculptural pieces off so well - I'm even drooling over your pink (eeeek) bits!

Those are such beautiful pieces Sue,  and the display is, as already mentioned,  a one man show in itself.
If I didn't already know,  I would have said you liked IOW Studio Glass!

I had no idea you had been broken into....that is horrid,  the feeling of being 'invaded'  and your private space violated,  is awful.  We were burgled years ago,  but his wife reported him to the Police and we got everything back......amazingly!

Craig,  I am going to have a go at uplighting some of the glass I have,  but as the lights are fixed,  it will mean standing on my head to look at the display......probably not.....at my age!

Thank you all for your lovely displays.
Rosie. :)

John, using light to accent your glass is brilliant... I also plan to do the same.  One day.

You're showing your *strange* bit after all! While I was away, I tried reading my "American Studio Glass 1960-1990" (Martha Drexler-Lynn), but sadly, found it highly unhelpful for my needs.
On p.52, there is a black and white pic of a panel of judges (all named and id'd by academic position) studying some pieces of glass from the 1968 Toledo Exhibition.

One of the bits of glass looks very similar to yours. The book omits to tell you who made the glass, of course.

(it seems to be mostly an academic treatise on the acceptance of glass into art, it's not really about the glass or the artists creating the movement at all.  :grrr:  I found it very dry and unrewarding.)

But perhaps some folk like books from that angle.
Personally, I've read far more interesting academic theses, though they've been scientific rather than art subjects.
Cheers, Sue (M)
