Bass Hole

Bass Hole

From my line called Fish Dimension, I’ve named this piece “Bass Hole.” Not only is my beautiful homeland of Florida known for its salt water sea life, but we sport many of the most gorgeous lakes with a multitude of natural beauty. In this 3-d glass piece I have depicted some of the indigenous plant life in full bloom with a dragonfly taking a much needed respite from the hot and humid day. The bass is being caught by a lucky angler using a colorful bait, complete with the water splashing around the tail. Of course I’m the fisherman and the fish tasted great. The stems of the Lilly pads, flower bud, and flower appear to dip below the water and the cat tails are extended above. The tail of the lucky dragonfly is curled up toward the observer as the ambient light reflects off the irridescent wings. As day changes to night, so follows the picture. All things visible below the waterline disappear as the sun sets. All in all, a scene from a hot and lazy summer day in Florida.
The window frame was found on a trash heap in Homestead Florida during a day of searching for orchids with my two good friends, John B, and John G. The fish pole is constructed from bamboo cut down at The Clay Place. The eyes on the fish pole are scrap collected from Surf and Turf Custom in Naples. The lure is junk from my old tackle box. The red flower is constructed from an old bowl that was slumped in the early 90’s, cut apart and reused as a different form of art. The frame is painted with oops paints from a local home repair store and the window hardware came from New Hampshire with a load of old windows I collected years ago.
