About ReflectionsThe beauty of a clear, cool stream—the water rippling beneath a bed of rocks is captured in this dynamic tabletop sculpture by Cheryl Wilson Smith. The glass artist finds inspiration in the rugged, rocky landscape that surrounds her home.
This piece features a clear, glass rectangular bed—the water and a curated collection of ‘stones’ in an earthy palette—each hand formed and fired from layers of glass frit (ground glass).
