Blown glass cairn sculptures by artist Melanie Leppla. These Cairns are blown and solid glass fused together in the flame to form a unique stone inspired sculpture. These glass sculptures are etched to create an almost stone-like finish and each cairn has a slightly unique design. This Small Gray Cairn contains patterned black and gray stone inspired glass pieces.
According to the artist, these Cairns, born in fire and light, are meant to represent accomplishments, knowledge and experience gained, difficulties overcome, sanctuary, and guidance for pathways yet to be traveled.
