Life on the ocean wave

What's this got to do with glass? Is the woman showing off? Sort of. But this is on its way to being an engraved plate. Wonderful 2-day experience. And it'll be my thank-you to mine host and hostess. Am designing it this weekend.

Commemoration of the London bombings

I did this bowl as a celebration of multiculturalism in the wake of the London tragedies. The figures are based on apsaras on a relief in an Angkor Wat temple. Apsaras are minor goddesses in Hinduism who 'marry' celestial musicians. They were born during the Indian creation myth of 'Churning the Ocean' for the ambrosia of immortality. I don't know why, but the iconography seemed right to me.
