Las Vegas Wedding
Completed April 2009
This design was intended to have the exciting feeling of Las Vegas, incorporating a representation of the Bellagio and fountains, the blown glass floral Dale Chihuly ceiling, and a variation (personalized) of the landmark welcome sign. I painted and fired lots of details.

Completed Dec. 2008
