Edges of the Desert

Glass Wall Art
by Anne Wren Nye

Kiln Glass Wall Panel
28″H, 18″W, 1.5″D

Shortly after moving to Arizona someone commented that everything about the desert is prickly. I found this to be true but fell in love with it regardless. This piece was inspired by that very prickliness. I love the desert Agave cactus and the impressions they leave on each new leaf that opens, similar to the impression the desert leaves on those who live here. Edges and impressions, part of desert life.
They are made entirely of glass using my signature technique in which I mix Bullseye glass powder with water, apply to sheet glass with traditional painting tools and kiln fire several times to achieve the perfect combination of color and surface texture.Because it’s all glass, it will not sun fade even in the harshest light. Mounted on a hidden backing of aluminum and hangs easily with a gallery wire. Dry wall hanger included.

 

“For me each piece I create is a story in the making. I begin with an inspiration, something I’ve seen or often part of a dream. Sometimes it’s just a group of colors that seem to niggle at my brain, teasing me to come play. Once I start working, the search begins for the story. Much like a writer working out a plot, a dialogue develops with each piece sometimes taking me in a completely different direction than I first thought.”

Anne Nye studied fine art at the University of Idaho & California College of the Arts, completing course work for a BFA in painting & worked as a graphic designer for many years. She switched from painting to glass about 20 years ago & is largely self taught. She has developed her own signature method of making glass behave like paint. Each piece is fired multiple times to get just the right colors & surface texture.
