Figures, couples and families

The images I represent in couples, figures and groupings - in families show the various facets of personalities that make up such relationships.
In using the method of sandcasting glass, I am very happy with the resulting shiny and revealing side as well as the contrasting rough side of the glass sculpture.
As in personal relationships it is the contrasts as well as similarities that keep people interested in eachother and interesting to others.
The rich colours on the rough side of the pieces introduce the mood, or common colour to the relationship. Sometimes these colours block the interior. The shiny side of the sculpture lets one view the interior thoughts and feelings, and reveal a bit more about the individual. The placement of the figures can be changed to reveal what the viewer cares to reveal of the relationship between the figures.
