Sockeye salmon in spawning colors appear to swim in a continuous pattern across this triptych (3 panel set). Four shades of green glass provide the illusion of an underwater view of the river. Glass cane are used to represent seaweed flowing in the current. The colorful glass used in the panels also has an irridized coating. This coating creates a colorful pattern in the glass which is visible in low light or different angles of view. When creating the panel composition, glass components are arranged to the artist's satisfaction and the entire panel is fired to 1500 F, where it become one seamless piece. However, the fish remain slightly raised. Once cooled, the panel has a mirror backing applied. It is then mounted to 3/4" plywood, ready for installation.
