Similar to the Tropical Weave pattern, I made la Mer de Monet by laying strips of hand raked glass on end to create a linear yet organic pattern.

The color palette and the way the colors are separated yet flowing remind me of Claude Monet’s paintings of his water garden at Giverny.

I added the sea grass to emphasize the flowing quality of the colors and to provide contrast with the linear pattern.
