The Industrial Journey Series....#1

Okay, I'll admit it....I love going to the scrap yard! I love finding stuff on the ground....yup, I love scavenging. This piece was so fun to make.

The industrial feel is quite  purposeful although my search for parts was quite random. I made these while doing battle with the "crud."

Each time I emerged from that fuzzy, yucky, spacey zone I found myself trying to construct something positive from the mass of toss-away stuff I had found. 

I made 4 glass panels (one sold) and then chose different mountings and different "accessories" for each in response to the hot/cold flow of the glass. This piece of glass is mounted to black lucite plastic which "floats" on top of a piece of hand-polished scrap aluminum.
