Description

Artist Amanda Taylor uses several different techniques to achieve a realistic representation of the natural beauty she sees all around her.  She begins with a “blank canvas” of glass (some with a background of mountain silhouettes), then assembles the landscapes by placing glass powder where she would like to position tree trunks.  The trunks are pre-fused glass powder components.  All the tree branches are made from glass strings that she creates by pulling glass into very thin branch like shapes using a torch flame. Once the branches are pulled, they are arranged onto the tree trunks.  Custom color combinations of crushed glass are then placed as the ground & leaves within the landscapes. The glass panel was fired three times in a glass kiln to create a sense depth within the piece. The glass piece is unique and etched signed by the artist in one of the corners of the piece.

The semi-transparent quality of the glass is emphasized when placed in a lighted cabinet or in front of a window on a deep window sill.

By drawing inspiration from places that I have visited or live within , I use my glass work as a way to creatively interpret the ever present beauty touches my soul. I use light, color, and form to create a sense of place in my work.
