Rituals and Reliquaries: Antique Marbles
Mixed on archival support
24 14" x 24 1/2" x 2 1/2" d.
This piece began with the large clay Bennington style marble in the reliquary. I found this marble as well as the other small ones while gardening in my yard in the late 1970's, in fact all the marbles in this piece were acquired in that manner, some are vintage, some antique.

I was a time-consuming piece as there are many layers of transparent color built-up to replicate the look of a glass marble.

Marbles, basswood strips, copper mesh, acrylic paint, acrylic casting media.
