Facets II


Art: Facets II by Artist Diane G. Casey

Facets II

This is a colorful, triangular-shaped, abstract Stained Glass Painted Bottle that reminded me of the facets of jewels; hence the title. Facets are the small, flat-cut surfaces on a gem, which produce a sparkling effect with transparent stones.

The facets allow light to both enter a gem and reflect off its surface at different angles, creating the wonderful play of color and light.

This piece measures approx. 7"Hx4"Wx4"D.

There is a large cork in the top, and I believe this bottle was used to store nuts and/or candies, but it can now be viewed and displayed as a piece of functional art.

You can store any small dry items inside and set it on a table, shelf or windowsill to display. When the sunlight shines through the colors, it will cast lovely colorful shadows.

I decided to put a modern abstract spin on it, and just went wild with color. This piece is truly a stunner in person! Absolutely LOVELY to gaze upon. The colors just hit you, and no matter which angle you view it from there is color everywhere!

This piece would look fabulous in any window of any home.

I signed it on the bottom.

It features stunning, gem like colors in jewel tones that have a beautiful translucency or iridescence to them. I achieve this look by mixing 2 or more colors in each section.

Some of the colors I used are: sparkling gold mixed with amber, denim blue, emerald green, orange poppy, rose quartz, amethyst and white.

Please note that this piece is NOT dishwasher safe, so please don't try it. It can be used to store dry goods, or even lotion or liquid on the INSIDE ONLY, but the outside where it's painted, shouldn't get wet. This will damage the piece.

Thanks for looking and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me.
