This is the first sculpture I worked on. I wanted a very simple shape and envisioned a bowling pin. I got pretty close! I also had envisioned him being made of all purple glass. That color is so deep that it must be seen in the right light or it looks black. I like the "surprise" aspect of that - almost an optical illusion. But when I went to look at my stock of glass, I found I didnt have enough of the purple so I used my greens and had him hiding in the grass!
