About Outcrop 11

Cheryl Wilson Smith’s delicate glass sculptures are inspired by ancient rock and the boreal forests that surround her home in a remote part of Northern Ontario. Outcrop 11 is one of a series of beautifully detailed wall sculptures that resemble natural rocky outcrops in shades of black, dark gray and soft pink.
