I find great joy in photographing my friends while they are jumping. This glass cast was sculpted from a picture I took of a friend in the hilarious moments after we coordinated a picture of her leaping into a lake. She did a really funny jump, and couldn't stop laughing as she climbed out of the water. It's really about having fun and making beauty with friends.

From the photo of her laughing face, I sculpted a clay head, made a special sand mold of it, and poured molten glass into it. It was then annealed in a kiln for 3 days before I ground and polished a few facets on it so it stands upright and has some clear prisms emerging from the side.

It is a beautiful and uplifting piece to have around, and it is difficult to be grumpy around such a radiant smile. It looks especially good in a windowsill, where the light from outdoors will change through the clear glass, making it always appear differently. It is approximately 5 inches tall, 2.5 inches deep and 4 inches wide.

This image for this sculpture came a few moments after I made the photo for this piece:

A perfect piece of figurative glass sculpture for anyone who loves the high state of laughter.
