Fusion in My Garden

Last summer, I visited the the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and saw the incredible exhibit, "FUSION: A New Century of Glass."  The exhibit featured several dozen pieces of art made out of glass. My favorite piece was called "Bride" by Beth Lipman, which was "a ten-foot, five-tiered dessert stand featuring handmade glass objects that rise, overflow, and then spill on the floor."  On the last tier, the glass objects are somewhat jumbled together, and yet in some ways, the last tier was the most beautiful, the glinting glass all the more powerful.  The piece inspired me to rummage around my house, collecting my pieces of cut glass and crystal and play around with different arrangements.
