Narcacissm; sometimes referred to as self Love, sometimes self infatuation. Ironically most narcassist’s probably do not have a whole lot of self confidence. They just can not stop assuming their opinion is what everybody else should have. And, if they do not. Then they are just not right.

Annoying.
With that in mind!
Marbles traditionally have two sides. Right now I am interested in the marble having a minimum of four views, hopefully six, or eight. This BIG marble I started working on a couple months ago started like this.
Each murrini… (the little walking man, or a bug (if you are my husband; he insist’s they are bugs.)  I just know they came out good enough to practice these new techniques I am developing. They are all derived by my past instructors.)  The murrini was set into a blob of super HOT peeled vetrofond clear glass, and then annealed.  All four pieces were placed together in another torch session, and shaped into a marble.   The point is, as you turn the marble, you see the person standing above ts own reflection. Over and over. Four times in this one.
The cobalt blue references a water reflection.
Why?
It is an illustration of something that is going on around me. Referencing the vicious cycle we put ourselves through, the choices made that just are the same thing over and over? Why are you hitting yourself?
Why did you hit yourself again? and again? and again?
Some things just DO NOT make sense.
So~For the sake of art….(my art is GREATLY a result of the world around me. I was supposed to be an emotionalist for some reason?? If that even is a thing?)
This one went back in the kiln, and the flame to become punty free, and decorated with an organic texture of color…(not photographed yet!)
