There are several reasons why this piece is significant:
* it is the first piece I made completely in my own studio
* I assembled the first half of the piece while I was in labor
* the blue glass is all leftovers from repairing the stained glass skylight in my house
* some of the blue glass is new, and some is over one hundred years old! (It is a perfect match in color but not in texture.)
Extra credit to those who can deduce why it is called "Breaking the Rule of Five" Click on the photo for an enlarged version for closer examination.
Special thanks to Dan Gamaldi at Cradle of the Sun for his help with the frame!
