Migratory Art - Free Range Glass

Most stained glass lives a tame, domesticated life atop your lamps or staring wistfully out of your windows.

Feral Glass runs wild on legs of brass.

I notice that my art seems happiest when travelling in small herds. We see a few pieces here, which have ventured out of the garden and into a clearing to enjoy a sunny afternoon.

You can tell it is Fall, and their bright coloration makes them stand out more, as the summer's growth fades back. Good thing they have no natural predators. Even my dog keeps out of their way.

Mixed herds are not uncommon. In the top photo you see a small red Lawn Dot has joined the taller Garden Spirits.

In the second photo you can see a Double Ejecta in the foreground and a blue Lawn Dot on the other side of the herd.

Feral Glass and other forms of free range art is meant to liberate your spirit as well as the art work. Put art in unexpected places.

It is common to spend $250 for a painting to decorate one wall. For less than that, you can have a small herd of art grazing in your lawn or garden.

Provide Color and Form All Year Round
You can see here how they come together for company in the coldest months. They prefer a lot of sunlight, and really glow out there in the snowfields.
The largest herds of Feral Glass are to be found in Virgina, though their natural range is the entire United States and Canada. Sizeable herds have been established in Oklahoma, Texas and New Hampshire, and small numbers are being introduced into other states as you read this. Soon they will be in Europe.
Won't you please help them in their migration?
