In my youth, I removed these old glass bottles from the earth using sticks and sharp-edged rocks as digging implements. Today, I continue to admire the beauty and unique imperfections inherent in each.

Hey, thanks for stopping by! I’d planned to serve lunch to guests, today, but my new stove is back in the shop and this older model simply won’t suffice…alas. I’ll see what I can do about getting a fire started in the fireplace…

New York Glass
As a child with a hobby of collecting old bottles, this vintage glass was unearthed during the 1970’s while digging near a haunted house in Marquette, Michigan. Photo One is a small bottle from the Napier Chemical Company in New York, and has an air bubble in the glass. Photo Two is a taller bottle from the Black Cat Polish Company in Buffalo, New York, and to this day retains much of its original cork. See more in my gallery.

Still Life Rose
Using Affinity Photo software, I made the following modifications to this photograph of a pink rose: the image was straightened and cropped, then desaturated; a mask was added in order to paint back color into the rose; clarity was enhanced, and adjustments layers were used (white balance, vibrance, levels); I also included a faint glow effect and a textural overlay.
