It all started here at Green's Corner in May of last year.

Green's Corner located in Shawnee, Oklahoma is one of my favorite places to shop for "found objects" that I include in my glass art designs. While meandering in one room, I looked up and saw this skull. I liked how his horns had grown and the proportion of his entire head. I imagined him to be feisty and a little wild in his day, maybe even fast and smart. I bought the skull and decided I would make a glass cow skull one day using him as my inspiration.
Nine months later I did. I tried to get as close to the original shape as I could. Below is a photo taken with lights threaded up through the skull. The feather was also the same feather that hung on one of the horns. How did I create this piece? I have included pictures of the process - Enjoy!

Very beautiful. You certainly used your inspiration well; the cow would probably be proud. ;)
