Hanging Prismatic Diamond Glass Art Sculpture
The indigo color is from the glass pieces that came from windows of an old textile mills in Concord, NC captured during a renovation – where this beautiful glass was to be thrown away!
Measuring 13″ tall and 7″ wide, the DayMaker is installed with a .5″ eye hook for secure hanging. I add finishing touch of rope in a macrame fashion to extend the DayMaker’s hanging length.
something that makes your day
In 2018 – way before the glass DayMaker was even a thought – I made triangles out of popsicle sticks and vinyl. I played with those triangle shapes until I assembled them into two three-sided pyramids, strung a string through the top and placed them base to base. I hung one in my studio window and marveled at its beauty. I continued to make about five more. These vinyl DayMakers hung in the window so long that they fell down and laid on the table for a while. Then one day, David made me triangular molds for a dodecahedron glass sculpture. Fortunately for the DayMakers, this very complex idea-of-a-sculpture didn’t work out as I had envisioned and I was left with a plethora of indigo glass triangles. The DayMaker as we know today was born.
The Rainbow DayMaker represents freedom from a single color and the acceptance of all.
Made with colored glass from thrift stores, garage sales, and liquor bottles, the Rainbow DayMaker slides through all shades of the rainbow and adds texture with ground broken pieces of glass.
The hanging mechanism is a steel ring woven to a steel wire with black rope that connects to an eye-hook resined deep inside of the DayMaker.
