Etched and Sand Carved Art Glass by Cynthia Myers

This bowl has been a favorite of mine and my customers for several years.  As a child we had a small orchard of pear trees and I can still remember climbing the ladder, surrounded by these beautiful green leaves and green pears the sun dancing with the shadows creating patterns in the tree.  This is what inspired me. This compote is unique in that I have drawn and etched pears on both sides of the glass.  The golden base that transforms into a beautiful teal green at the lip is a perfect complement to the pears.  Being etched on both sides creates shadows on the leaves and pears design and gives this piece a modern abstract value while retaining the organic. Now the sad is discontinued.
