Storm - huge waves, compared to which the vessel appears to be tiny, while on the other hand the whole scenery fits onto the small canvas of a glass bead.

This bead has been wound on a mandrel, and then flame worked into its shape by sculpting (using a paddle and bread knife) and by adding more glass if necessary. I've used different glass colours, enamels and thin stringers to create  this design.

Nature has always been the most powerful source of inspiration for me, no matter what artistic medium I've worked in, before I've discovered the magic of glass.
