Zest

This piece was inspired by my first-ever wood and glass sculpture, Genesis. The inner section was a wood sculpture. I liked the minimalized surface areas and structure. But since I never duplicate a piece, I modified the design and had a go at it in glass. I did enjoy this adventure of creating what I now call small treasures. I will do more.

Also, I did a high polish finish on Zest instead of my traditional matt surface texture. It’s considerably more work, because I needed to sand the entire piece – including all those small intersections – three more times. But I really like the outcome. Hope you do as well.
