New glass for winter

I'm having a winter display in the Off Centre gallery window throughout June.  To celebrate the season, here are some light-catching polished glass blocks in alpine colours and cheery reds.  They were hard to photograph, as they respond to light and I had to try and capture them on a dull day.  I'm enjoying the challenge of making things that have three-dimensional colour... there are many ways to make colour move through the block from front to back, and the tiny seed bubbles add an extra dimension.  There's nothing like glass!
