The inspiration for this stained glass piece has to be attributed to the snows of 2009-2010. From December 18th of 2009 through the first week of March, we had snow on the ground. The first 10 inches of snow came and went, then 14" more that never melted, and then another 3 - 4 inches or so fell on top of that. The horses stayed in the barn for weeks, unable to walk, or to be led to the pasture. There was nothing to nibble on even if we could safely get them there. My wife Lenny took the original picture, and I used the photo to create this glass work. Currently, this work is being displayed for sale at the Floyd Artists Association in the Station in Floyd, Va.
"Skidder and Wedge" - SOLD
"Skidder and Wedge" is a mixed media piece inspired by photos I took at the 2007 Horse Pull competition at the Jacksonville Center for the Arts. I learned from my farrier, who knows many of the horses in the county, that the names of these two logging horses are "Skidder" and "Wedge"... which I thought would be a great name for the piece.
The horses in the piece are made of various colors of stained glass, attached to a 1/4" birch board. The background and frame are made of extinct American Chestnut salvaged from the Raven Road Barn (see Barn Recycling tab).
The dimensions of "Skidder and Wedge" are 28" wide and 18" tall.
"Chestnut Sky" - SOLD
"Chestnut Sky" is a mixed-media stained glass work of a streetscape of downtown Floyd, Virginia. The scene encompasses the Blue Ridge Restaurant on the far left and Farmer's Supply Hardware on the right. The sky and frame are made of wormy American Chestnut that I reclaimed from a 130-year old log barn in Floyd County (see the barn recycling tab).
