Part of the Reason
- Vitreous enamel on copper, stainless steel
- 52" x 37"
"Each section of this work is cut from copper sheet then fired in a kiln at 1450 degrees. The fired glass enamel has a rich depth and translucency that catches the light. The sections then become jewel-like when seen from different angles."
