^^^^ This is a photograph and NOT digital art ^^^^

This was a one off print that sold for $800. I think it is my most successful piece to date. Anywho there will not be subsequent prints available for this.

The IRL size of this is 46"x25"

Just to remind people, this is a macro photograph of flame-worked borosilicate glass.

HOLY SHAT first DD!!!!! Thanks to all the people who like this. I have a policy where I look at everyone's gallery who looks at mine. Time to get crackin'!!

The suggester said: "Line by =OConnellFineGlass dazzles viewers with a vividly-colored macro shot of his swirly, flame worked, borosilicate glass piece which displays a liquid-like design often mimicked by digital art."
Yes, that's right, this is not digital art. It is a photograph of a colorful glass coin, made by the artisan himself. ( Suggested by AJGlass and Featured by MyntKat )

This was a macro shot of the inside of the glass????

I am completely amazed and without words on how completely awe-inspiring the capture of such a wonderfully complex macro with such variations of colors is.

Not just that, but there's something in the composition which makes it more than just pretty colors. There's emotion and movement and when I look into this, it somehow makes my soul sing a little.

Oh, and congratulations on the DD. I'm really glad that you got it so that I got the chance to see this.

Very nice glass fractal!!!

I've always wanted to work glass.

I'm looking forward to seeing your work.

I'm interested in what happens when you melt and mix glass of dissimilar properties; (cobalt, depression, coke bottle for example)

thanks for your art!

Congratulations on the DD!
When I first saw it, I was thinking, "What's so great about this?" Then I clicked on it and read the artist comments. I was shocked to see that it wasn't digital art. Absolutely wonderful!

I looked at your other works in your gallery, and I think this one is the best. :)

Thanks, this piece is special too me because I made the glass with the intent of taking macros of it. All of my other pieces are macros of jewelry I made. I am really glad to see that the extra effort was worth it, it validates my process and makes it worth while.
