Art: The Time Will Come by Artist Gia Swango
"The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door..."* A little shimmer of reflected light. Delicate images on translucent paper pressed between textured glass and layered over mirror. Sensuous curves of rich color, a vintage brooch wrapped with tiny ocean green and purple seed beads. Each piece of glass in this stained glass mirror is hand cut and fitted, then assembled using traditional copper foil and leaded glass techniques. Dimensions: 5 1/8" x 11 1/8" x 3/4" deep Set in a vintage wood frame. Lean it on a dresser or shelf, hang it on a wall...this piece lends a nice reflective glow to just about anywhere. ********************************************************** The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life. --Derek Walcott, "Love After Love"
