Netherlands Horse Rescue and New Wire Sculpture

I was so moved by the Netherlands Horse Rescue I thought I should create some artwork that would somehow share the emotion. About 200 horses were trapped on a tiny island for days after terrible flooding. Four women rode out into the cold water and the herd followed them back to dry land! These are some sketches in glass before firing, the finished glass is too stiff in the large piece, I will continue to work with the idea.






Here is the finished wire sculpture of Comedy and Tragedy, 8" x 10" done for one of the visitors to the Ramona Studio Tour

The 3" x 4" wire sketch:
