parley view parsnip. . . a very late start !

Another Monday to start fresh with the week ahead.
Another storm flew in from California and we have clouds
dipping in and out of the canyons, with rain 
beautiful much need rain.
Another day of playing catch up.
.
I was asked in a post from last week, what is the metal object in the case ?
.
 .
It is really glass and I call it 
"The Reclining Lady"
.
 When I remolded and added a bathroon I cut off a the new guest bath from a window.
I added a glass wall to "steal" light from the new bathroom in back.
When my home burned down in a wildfire the glass block window melted like a river.
My older son found this piece and we saved it. 
It was bigger but fragile and broke.
.
 .
 .
 Just look at the perfect wave of hair.
.
 .
 And just like a river or looking under ice you can see many things
captured in it.
.
 Even bubbles of air.
,

Here is your pretty to start the week.
 A sunset from last week. I posted one photo already but here is the series.

  6. Wow...that is amazing. I thought it was some sort of rock, but it's a glass! Makes me feel scared thinking how powerful the fire was. But maybe it's a good reminder that you and your family came through it.
    That's a beautiful sunset! Love the gradation of colors of the sky!

  8. Fascinating - When the weather improves I love walking round the garden and finding examples of beauty in nature. I have decided to hang them from one of the trees.

  9. I actually find your reclining lady rather disturbing, especially knowing how she was created - thank goodness you've got her safely captured in the glass dome!
    Ah, pretties, that's more like it!
