kari's sunflowers

isn't this great?  Kari finished this beautiful panel in a personalized workshop here at Zekiah Glass, coming for half-day sessions for the past several weeks.  she had completed the basic two-day class a couple of years ago, and now wants to learn more, and do more complicated pieces.  She brought in the painting you see on the left as a guide.  I drew it up, simplifying it some, but not too much, and we managed to retain the feel of the original with 66+ pieces.  Kari selected some gorgeous glass - and some of it came from the "difficult and expensive" section!  but it was well worth it for the final product.  we even added another dimension by applying the three inward turning petals at the center on top of the framed glass.  tricky!
