Snap Shot Painted Daisy

Cast glass and black and white photo on wooden box frame.

9 By 12

I began to use my own flowers as models for my photographs. A painted daisy was blowing on a windy day, its petals overlapping each other. It looked as if it were a moving sculpture. I printed my photograph, then created a clay model of the photo. I cast that in glass and mounted my photo on the wooden box frame, which is much harder than it looks. It took several tries to paste the photo using archival glues onto the box frame and have the glass match perfectly.  I mounted the glass sculpture over the photograph leaving some of the photo to show. This mounts on a wall.

The glass is removable from the box frame and the original photo lies beneath.
