Nature's Shadow Box
This wall piece by Laurel Grey is made from a collection of earthy treasures: a dragonfly, metallic glass leaves, a glass clay feather. Winter branches against an iridescent sunrise. A natural pheasant feather is nestled between realistic glass “stones”. Delicate copper wires form undulating waves. The dragonfly’s wings are screenprinted to capture the finest details, then kiln fired for permanence, as are the branches of the bare trees. Tiny mirrors invite the viewer into the art, glass accents create flow and balance, and layers upon layers add depth and interest to the piece.
This is truly a one of a kind art piece you can appreciate over and over again; you’ll see something different every time.

About the Artist
Laurel grew up in Japan, Germany and Texas and spent most of her adult life in Washington State and the central coast of California, moving to Wisconsin in 2007. Her glass reflects a blend of all these various geographies and cultures. She’s particularly influenced by the Japanese aesthetic of bringing the outside in, in close harmony with the natural world. Her work includes coffee tables with glass leaves, branches and stones under glass; strands and windchimes of floating glass leaves; window and wall panels made with glass leaves, stones and cultured seaglass.
