Sculpting molten metal and copper directly on art glass is a technique developed by Veenstra which creates a silhouette of molten and sculpted copper fused on a background of stunning molten sheet art glass, representing an amazing sunset/sunrise scene. The molten metal is hand worked and a patina process is utilized on one or both sides of the glass to create a three dimensional image. When light enters from the back side of the glass, it is blocked by the background metal and when viewed from the front, the appearance is that of a distant shore or landscape feature. Veenstra utilizes just the right glass to represent the colors, patterns, and textures to compliment his original design. These pieces may be framed in various ways and are designed to either hang on a wall with primarily front lighting, or in windows and have natural sun light pass through them, resulting in a very dynamic piece of art that looks different throughout the day as lighting changes. All of these metal and glass pieces, especially when complimented by detailed sandblast carving and etching, take on different looks from different angles. Applications may include those where artificial back lighting is added, such as in cabinetry or built in walls.
