In the Shallows Glass Portal

In the Shallows Glass Portal

Caryn Brown

Home gardens are being designed with tranquility and serenity in mind. These all-season garden portals compliment the beauty of your garden and provide a place for the eye to rest. Their circular form with a center portal encourages you to take advantage of a moment for the mind to be free, to imagine, to rest, to be at peace.

The artist has reinterpreted the traditional mosaic in a method she calls "Melted Mosaics." Glass pieces are arranged in a circular form or portal. The glass portal is then heated in a kiln until all the pieces of glass melt together. Once the glass is cooled and annealed, it is taken to the metal studio where a custom, stainless steel stand is fabricated. The stand with the glass portal can be placed directly into garden soil or into a planter on the patio.

Each piece is hand made and some variation in color occurs.

Dimensions: 40" x 10"

About the Artist

Caryn Brown

Caryn Brown

Working in kiln glass, Caryn Brown has learned to trust her creativity and what she knows about the science and physics of glass.  From concept to creation, Brown actively manipulates the fundamental materials of sheet glass, frit (ground glass) and rod/stringers.  Her work is then surrendered to the kiln where the magic of heat, often in excess of 1500 degrees, works to change the raw materials into art.

Living in the Indiana Dunes National Park (United States,) Brown has access to natural landscapes that includes miles of beach along the southern shore of Lake Michigan. From sand dunes to lake shore, marsh to areas populated with trees, there is nature all around  me.  There is the fierceness of the winter winds across the Lake Michigan and the gentle breezes of summer. This nature, in all its forms, has the ability to bring about a calm serenity within her. She strives to reference that sense of energy, beauty and calm in the pieces she creates.
