Glass is my favourite medium of creative choice, however, as ever I found myself unable to resist a bit of an unconventional tug into the realm of combining it with another, starkly different material.

This time around the juxtaposition lies between the man-made glass lamp-worked beads and the rather massive bone pipes.
The dialogue of an organic and inorganic matter, if you will.

The glass beads are approximately 1" in diameter and were made according to my design and specification in the Mecca of the Bohemian glass world of Zelezny Brod, Czech Republic. I am happy to say that the cooperation with the talented artisans that are able with uncanny ability to turn one's ideas into reality still leaves me flabbergasted.
