Tree sculpture by LaughingTree Tree sculpture by LaughingTree
**UPDATE***
Woah! Didn't see this coming! I submitted this piece in 2005! If you like my work, (trees in particular), please take a look at where my glass trees evolved to by clicking on my profile and seeing my featured "sky tree series". I consider those to be my most successful glass trees to date! Thanks for the DD and the comments everyone! I'll get to them all in time!

Ever since I started blowing glass two years ago, I have tried to make glass trees... This is the only one I've ever been able to make that I like... I stayed up all night creating a pedestal that would illuminate it from underneath and during the critique I used a bulb that was too powerful... got it too hot... And it cracked... The story of my life...

This picture was taken after it cracked. It has yet to break off or fall apart :)

I made this piece about a year ago (winter 2004)

Materials: solid and blown glass

This piece is about 20" tall

I concur with ~APPLE009ZORRO, this is X L Ent, quite unique (at least the first time I've ever seen anything like this) and I like it a lot. Would look amazing lit up at night.

Haha. I was looking at my messages and was quite shocked when it had 3 group requests and a few recent comments. Quickly put it all together. Thanks!

Yup... Live and learn. Although they definitely weren't as prominent 8 years ago when I made this piece...
