1”x2”, glass, ceramic
It’s like the old adage, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. There’s always a mixture of smooth and rough. What can matter most is how all the elements work together and what perspective we have on the whole mix. In this case there’s a literal frame that holds it all together, making the messy pieces into something coherent. A combination of amazingly beautiful glass glaze that came from a broken bowl, a few pieces of manufactured glass tile, and some blue slag (a glass by-product of old-time iron production) that I found in the woods near an old factory, this pendant uses teal and blue and an extra-wide frame to harmonize the disparate elements.
