My newest work is creating sculptures with a burl wood base. The burl wood is actually roots that are dug up in southern California and Mexico. I am now creating small glass birds that are between 3/4 to 1 inch in length and then creating a habitat of flowers and foliage. All components are sculpted in glass on the end of wire which makes them easy to sculpt onto the wood.

ON THE SMALLER SIDE OF LIFE
Last night I made small little Forgetmenots. The open flowers
are light blue/yellow but the unopened buds on the stem are dark pink.
This sculpture is a burlwood that is only 1-3/4 inches high and 3 inches long
and the flowers and Bluebird are very small.
Of course, getting to use the dremel to make little holes
in the wood is an awful lot of fun.
