Sedona Vortex was born from an idea that’s been floating around in my mind for several years. My idea was to take alternating sections of flowers and color blocks and have them swirl in the glass. This is an original concept for my reverse painted glass chandeliers. It is a fusion of my abstract and flower subjects painted in the color palate of the Arizona desert.

My desert flowers look as if they will burst out of their sections. This is a very dynamic, lovely painted chandelier and I do plan to create many different pieces in this vein. As far as contemporary glass art goes, this is a brand new twist on a very classic idea. Swirling elements have been used in lighting and architecture for centuries.

Sedona Vortex, my newest abstract reverse painted glass chandelier will debut at my new desert art gallery soon—I’m very excited about this. Stay tuned for more details!!!
