Art: Dance of the Magnolia and Steel by Artist Stephanie Fischer
Found in a dumpster, the steel vase....a work of art....but discarded in such a cold way... The ultimate that EBSQ gives me is the challenge, the quest.....the shows are quests to see what I have been looking at for years. So I thought about doing a glass magnolia, but I wanted more and then my eye fell upon the steel vase, the challenge. From there it all just flowed. Multiple transparancies were made from a beautiful magnolia picture and then the first was adhered to the vase. 4 more were cut out and layered at different angles on top of either other. The effect is luminescent. Then a glass butterfly was created to add to the collage and then some leaves and microbeads. Acryllic paints were used to accent and embellish with "Live, Love, Laugh". That is what I was doing when I finished. The steel vase had a new life, a radiant beauty that satisfied me and the EBSQ challenge for Steel Magnolias.
