Butterfly Chalice by Karen Ehart
This kiln-fired glass sculpture features a three dimensional butterfly and is framed by a steel structure that acts as a display stand and as part of the sculpture. It is designed to be viewed from both sides. One side is smooth and has textural elements; one side is roughly textured, but also contains color and design. Both sides contain gold pen work fired onto the surface. Rivers of colorful and metallic small glass bits run through these pieces, and colorful glass powders create subtle shadows. No two are alike.
