Glass Flowers

Well this picture is worlds away from the usual fish porn that has graced the pages of this blog over the year. But I am all about giving credit to fellow artists. This photo is from an assignment that I shot today about this local girl who was contracted out by the City of Fairfield to produce this sculpture. Cherise Petker spent over 600 hours combining concrete, rebar, wire mess and close to 70,000 pieces of Italian glass into her recently unveiled California Golden Poppies Mosaic Sculpture that is on permanent display in downtown Fairfield. It's a large plethora of color that will be a nice addition to the downtown strip.
