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.
