SRA Lampwork Bead OOAK Art Glass Focal Lampwork Cheshire Cat Bead Kitty Artisan Flamework Bead Alice in Wonderland Heather Behrendt 4155



This collectible artisan bead is has a core of purple luster under a heavy encasement of clear. Using glass stringer applied freehand in the flame, I've drawn my own interpretation of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland floating on a branch with the words "We are All mad here." floating behind. This Cheshire Cat has blue eyes and a pointy toothy smile, but with the purple and pink striped markings. Multiple layers of clear are added to magnify and give the appearance of floating. I've also added a white and black signature murrine with my initials HB.

The endcaps are finished off in shampoo glass purple

Each one of these sketch beads is one of a kind. The designs are not painted on. They are drawn with hair thin pieces of glass called stringer. Each one starts as a design in my sketchbook and is translated into glass.

All my beads are annealed in a computer controlled kiln for strength and durability, and cleaned with a diamond tipped dremel. These are handmade so there might be a slight variance in size.

My pictures are taken in a lightbox with an SLR camera to get the best representation of my work. There are still variances in monitors and so forth. If you have any questions or need more pictures, please let me know.
