Hand blown glass pears are the perfect wedding or anniversary gift, symbolizing everlasting affection. This print has nothing to do with that thought. It is a composition that dramatically illustrates how different surfaces absorb or reflect light in different ways.


A Closer Look ... Glass Pear

  This detail seems to incorporate all the major elements of the print. It is about light hitting two different pears, a plate, a wooden table and a fabric with a deep fuzzy pile. Nice stem.

  A very healthy, natural object, carefully rendered with Korn's number five lithographic crayon. Nicer stem.
