One of my favorite pieces thru the years to make was this blue giraffe panel for a customer on the east coast. When he asked if I could do a blue giraffe I was instantly, 'Omg, yes, yes! I'd love to do a blue giraffe!'
I used amazing old world Kokomo glasses to really make it pop; in a beautiful mix of cobalt blue, turquoise, blue and green streaky glasses for the border, two beautiful blues for the giraffe and added rare Czech double faceted red glass jewels in the corners.
Enjoyed this piece a lot and I really missed it once it was shipped. Customer loved it so much he ended up ordering several other panels. But this giraffe was definitely the favorite!
Right about the time I was making the blue giraffe the movie Avatar had become a favorite, so I kept picturing the blue giraffe as having six legs, and pondering that if there were giraffes in Avatar this is what they'd look like. 💙
Your work is so beautiful. You can always see the love you have for the craft
