NNART writes: I love this!!! Is it all glass or did you use real shells and driftwood...I've been collecting sea glass and stuff for years but was afraid to try to glue it down. One post said that the original glass would not hold up with glass glued on top. Any help you can give me would be very much appreciated! Posted: 12:51 pm on May 29th

No, not soldered, actually, but epoxy fused.

This work is extremely hard to photograph adequately...being both backlit and 3-D. Pics don't do justice to what happens with them in various types of light...especially changing natural light. They look completely different on a sunny day in November than on a cloudy day in April.

Glad you are enjoying them anyway! Posted: 2:25 pm on March 12th
