Cassandra of Troy by umetnica Cassandra of Troy by umetnica
My first big sandblasting thing. Awww.

I'm in a stained glass class at school (which is quite fun) and one of our projects was to do a sandblast piece with at least three layers. I decided to do something of Cassandra from the story of Troy because my Dad and I both like that character, so I figured he wouldn't mind holding onto it if I can't. I spent entirely too long trying to draw out what I wanted, but my original idea was way too detailed. I ended up starting totally from scratch and this is what came out.

It's on three pieces of glass that are 1/4 inch thick. The curtains, bottom wall thing and piece of her dress are on the back of the first piece. She's on the front of the second piece. The back wall and ground are on the front of the third piece.

Edit: Got a better picture now that it's framed! This was taken on the 12th at school by my teacher.

And if I don't *want* to ignore the action figures? ^_~ hee.

I like it a lot. When I saw the thumbnail before (when I had such things) I didn't realize it was glass... and it was even cool then. As glass it's even better, though! I can't even imagine being able to work with a media like that, I'm so impressed.

I *can* see the teartrack, but even without it I'm pretty sure I could tell she was crying. The posture and feel of the piece is right for it. Very nice ^_^

Well, if you don't want to ignore the figures, I guess I can't make you... Had I known Christian was gonna show up so well I probably would have taken him down. Oops.

:D Thank you.

Wow, when I worked with glass I had some trouble. Then again, it was my first try. :shrug:

This is very good! Somehow it has an ancient Greek tragedy feel.

I'm enjoying working with glass stuff. It can do such lovely stuff and so far it's been nice to me. :)

Thank you! I'm glad to hear this somehow got the right feel.
