A call was put out on social media for clear glass. Friends, neighbors, and strangers left used bottles of booze, olive, pickle, tomato sauce, and jelly jars on my front porch –all of which were reborn into this spectacular piece.
This work was a collaborative effort. The top made of Plexiglas, a material I had not used in my personal works before, gives this piece a wonderfully modern feel, catching and illuminating the inset bulb. My skill and vision as an artist were only enhanced by input from the person who commissioned this work.
