My mom isn't too good with computers, so I offered to put some pictures of her work on here so she could get comments. These are only two of her pieces: ROOSTERS Smiley

project 1

project 2

Thanks Smiley

You know, I keep seeing these glass works, and I think to myself, "Gee, you should try that - they look so pretty!" And then something like this comes along and totally makes me rethink it - it's such a high standard! I can't imagine how long it took to design this and put together, but surely it couldn't have been quick!

I love the wide shot of the first rooster - using clear glass instead of all colored squares really brings your attention to the geometrical aspect of the design, which I think is just gorgeous! And I have to say that the second guy's design captures the pride of a well-plumed rooster perfectly!

You're super nice to help your mom with the computer - I hope to see more of her work very soon!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

I'm not especially fond of roosters, but those look really well done. The colors are great, the textured glass is really awesome.  Great work!  Your mom's quite talented!
