This piece was one of the more challenging Dia pieces because of the tiny "bones" in the arms and hands... these are very small pieces of glass that like to move around... even in the stillness of a kiln firing....
The color palette of this composition is not one that I normally would use, but I wanted to keep in step with the bold colors used within the culture from where this figure comes. Likewise with the frame - it is more "rustic" than most of my finishes.
Ganesha is one of he Hindu deities and is know as "Lord of Beginnings, Remover of Obstacles, and Patron of the Arts and Sciences". As you can see from this piece, a particular "twist" can be applied to almost any normal theme to make it fresh and singular.
The figure is comprised of opaque glass in hues of orange, yellow, and purples. These fused pieces are permanently affixed to a ground of dark amber, textured art glass.
